Skender Krasniqi, Board member of the Association of Balkan News Agencies - Southeast Europe (ABNA-SE) and owner of the KosovaPress agency (Kosovo) is happy that last year, together with BTA Director General Kiril Valchev, the Bulgarian News Agency and other agencies, they founded together the Association of Balkan News Agencies (ABNA). Krasniqi is BTA’s guest for its 125th anniversary marked on this day, February 16.
The Association has already been registered in Sofia and has begun serious work on projects, Krasniqi underscored.
Cooperation between news agencies in the contemporary information world is extremely important, for thanks to it news agencies can deal with fake news together, for example, the owner of KosovaPress said. Also, they can help other media and countries along those lines.
As an example, Krasniqi quoted the cooperation between ABNA-SE, the European Association of News Agencies (EANA) and the situations in the world of information involving reporting of sensitive topics like the coronavirus pandemic and the war in Ukraine.
Noting that KosovaPress and BTA have been cooperating for many years, Krasniqi said he is very happy to attend the celebration of BTA’s anniversary. It is very nice that BTA is turning 125, he commented and wished the Agency all the best.
"May you continue to be what you are now," said Krasniqi.
