This wealth creates a very strong ground for a bright future, a developed and prosperous common civilization. We know that our most valuable treasure is unity in the heart. But now it’s time to take more concrete and stronger steps. With the mass media and social media, which are seen as guiding and determining the social effects of today’s world, we come across as areas that we need to deal with and get used to while constructing the future. There is certainly a lot to do in these areas. Moreover, it is obvious that the digital networks that are gradually increasing with global disinformation, false and fake news reporting, traditional media tools whose purpose is only manipulation, and unfortunately, the groups that carry out fifth column activities in these networks are also growing.”

A joint publication that announced the demands of the just cause of Azerbaijan, which ended the occupation of Karabakh a year ago, to the world public opinion in the strongest way possible. Our understanding, our approach to communication, which is put forward with fairness and conscience, has shown what the Turkish world can actually achieve when united. We did not only win in the field, we also won in communication. We saw that if there is unity in the field of communication, we can better explain your just causes, legitimate rights and demands to the world.” said.
