 Anadolu Agency (A.A) Director-General Hilmi Bengi has said that they were planning to transmit news in four different languages next year.

In a televised interview with private tv channel Kanal 24, Bengi, who is also the president of A.A Executive Board, said, "we have already been providing news in English. In addition, we aim to begin transmitting our news also in French, Arabic and Russian next year."

"Last year, A.A celebrated its 90th anniversary. We have a ten-year plan till the 100th anniversary. The plan also includes transmission of news in four languages to gain an international status," he said.

Bengi said that A.A offered its subscribers nearly 1,500 news reports every day, adding, "A.A has more than 1,000 subscribers in Turkey and around the world. It has signed cooperation agreements with a number of international and national news agencies."

"A.A supplies a steady stream of news around the clock covering a large spectrum extending from politics to health, parliament news to economy, cultural and artistic activities to sports and science and technology to education. We also have an archive of more than 1 million photographs. We provide some 500 photographs to our subscribers on daily basis. We also have a video news department supplying about 120 videos each day," he said.

Bengi recalled that A.A had taken over rotating presidency of the Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA) for three years.

Established on April 6, 1920 by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder of the modern Republic of Turkey, A.A is the biggest news agency of Turkey and one of the prominent wire services of the world. With its 28 regional offices within the country and 41 bureaus in foreign countries, A.A instantly informs its subscribers about the developments in Turkey and in the world.
