Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 28 / Trend T.Hajiyev /

Unity of the Turkic-speaking media outlets in the joy and sorrow is today's necessity, Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Social and Political Department Chief Ali Hasanov said at the Second Media Forum of the Turkic-speaking Countries and Communities in Baku today.

According to Hasanov, the Turkic-speaking states' media should coordinate their activities.

"Holding the joint activities of the Turkic media outlets, their unity in joy and sorrow is an urgent issue," he said. "Otherwise, our fair appeals will be brought to the world in the wrong form, and our message will not reach the addressee."

Unfortunately, Hasanov said, the media outlets of the Turkic-speaking countries are engaged in information support of own countries. However, in today's world, transnational television corporations' influence cover not only local, but also other regions, Hasanov said.

"Today, we get information about what's happening in the world from such corporations as CNN, BBC and Euronews, but we cannot obtain alternative information," he said.

The media outlets of the Turkic-speaking states operate alone, Hasanov said, stressing that these media outlets are carriers of a common religion and common culture, and that they have common roots.

"Each of us must be not only a Muslim, but a Turk," he said.

The Second Media Forum of the Turkic-Speaking Countries and Communities started in Baku today.
The event is organized by the Press Council and the Fund of State Support to the Development of Mass Media under the President of Azerbaijan.

Attending the forum are representatives of Azerbaijan, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Northern Cyprus, Russian Federation's republics of Tuva, Sakha, Khakasiya, Kabardin-Balkar, Karachay-Cherkes, Tatarstan, Bashkordistan, Ukraine's Crimea Autonomous region, Moldova's Gagauz Autonomous Territory, European Turkish communities, Iraq, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia and Kosovo.
