Wikipedia didn’t fulfill Turkey’s requirements - ministry

Wikipedia didn’t fulfill Turkey’s requirements to delete unreliable articles in which the country was accused of having ties with terrorist groups, a source in the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications told Trend Jan. 18.

Turkey repeatedly demanded the founders of Wikipedia to amend the misleading information posted on its website, the source noted.

“Unfortunately, the online encyclopedia still contains false information about Turkey,” the source said.

The online encyclopedia will be unlocked in Turkey only after the relevant requirements are fulfilled, according to the source.

On Jan. 17, Turkish media reported that Wikipedia deleted all articles alleging that Turkey has ties with terrorist groups.

In April 2017, the Information and Communication Technologies Authority of Turkey blocked access to the Wikipedia in the country.
