Turkey informs NATO about the adoption of its name in the form “Türkiye”


On Monday, Turkey informed NATO of writing its name “Türkiye” instead of “Turkey” in foreign languages.

This came in a letter sent by the Permanent Mission of Turkey to NATO last week to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.


And on Wednesday, the United Nations announced that it had approved the registration of Turkey’s name in the form “Türkiye” instead of “Turkey” in foreign languages, at Ankara’s request.

And on Tuesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said in a tweet via Twitter that he had sent a letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, to register Turkey’s name in the foreign languages ​​approved by the organization (which uses Latin letters) in the “Türkiye” format.


Subsequently, Ankara sent a notification to the EU institutions to use the country’s name as “Türkiye”.
