JAKARTA (AA) – Two top Anadolu Agency officials presented its new Islamic World News Package in the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Friday.
The agency’s Deputy Director General Mustafa Ozkaya and International News Editor-in-Chief Faruk Tokat met with Aat Surga Safaat, the editor-in-chief of Indonesia’s official news agency Antara, to discuss an agreement signed last year allowing the two news agencies to exchange reporters and training.
Under the agreement, Antara reporters will be able to work in Anadolu Agency’s Istanbul and Ankara bureaus, Ozkaya said, adding that Anadolu is ready for cooperation to strengthen the agreement.
"Ozkaya invited Antara News Agency reporters to Anadolu Agency’s Turkey bureaus. We believe that our reporters’ knowledge and experience will progress through the exchange program," Safaat said.
