Euronews has signed a memorandum of understanding with Georgian telco Silknet in view of launching a new channel and digital platform aimed at a Georgian-speaking audience.
According to Euronews, the broadcaster has found a “trusted partner” in Silknet and the two companies are in advanced negotiations to launch a news channel in Georgia.
Euronews will share content with Euronews Georgia that will feature alongside the Georgian media’s original content.
Michael Peters, Euronews’ CEO said: “Just one week after announcing the future launch of Euronews Serbia and a few months after doing so for Euronews Albania, we are delighted to announce the signing of an MOU with Silknet in Georgia, in view of launching Euronews Georgia.
“At Euronews, we have always been 100 per cent committed to delivering impartial news and we have consistently, since our creation in 1993, been recognised as an independent media. We look forward to progressing in our collaboration with Silknet to offer a new high quality media, which will bring international news as well national news to viewers across Georgia.”
