Turkey’s move to change its official name to "Türkiye" at the UN following a request by Ankara has received wide media coverage in the international press. 
 
Anadolu Agency first announced that the UN had registered “Türkiye” as the country’s new name.
 
The Associated Press, NPR, CBS, Al Jazeera, France 24, Canberra Times, WBTV, Greek newspaper Kathimerini, Greek City Times and many websites announced the news, citing Anadolu Agency.
 
The new brand "Türkiye" is now in place in foreign languages.
 
Earlier, speaking to Anadolu Agency, UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said they received a letter from Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu addressed to Secretary-General Antonio Guterres requesting the use of "Türkiye" instead of "Turkey" in the international arena.
 
The spokesman said the country's name change became effective from the moment the letter was received.
 
Cavusoglu announced the letter's official submission to the UN and other international organizations on Tuesday.
 
"Together with our Directorate of Communications, we have been successful in preparing a good ground for this. We have made it possible for the UN and other international organizations, countries to see this change to using 'Türkiye,'" Cavusoglu said at Anadolu Agency's Editor's Desk at the agency's headquarters in the capital Ankara.​​​​​​​
