Television broadcaster Euronews on Feb. 11 denied that it plans to end its broadcast in Turkish.
"If anything were to change with our Turkish edition, Euronews would of course officially communicate on this. However, to this day, we have not made any public announcement indicating that our Turkish edition will cease to exist," a Euronews spokesperson told Duvar English.
The statement came after Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency earlier reported that Euronews will be suspending its Turkish and Italian services.
Citing the National Union of Journalists, Anadolu Agency said that Euronew's move will cost 30 employees their jobs.
Euronews however denied such a plan, saying it was "very surprised to read the article published by Anadolu this morning."
"The agency did not get in touch with Euronews before publishing the article to check the accuracy of their information. What the article contains is not based on any official communication from Euronews," it said.
Euronews said that it was "proud of the work of our Turkish edition team, whose high-quality independent reporting makes our Turkish edition one of Euronews’ most read digital editions."
"It is an important voice in the Turkish media landscape and is one of the outlets with the largest reach on social media in Turkey."
Founded in 1993, the Euronews channel broadcasts in 12 languages and has 500 permanent employees.
