FULL TRANSCRIPT: CNN World Exclusive Interview with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

In his first interview since the failed military coup on July 15, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan tells CNN’s Becky Anderson (@BeckyCNN) he would approve reinstating the death penalty if lawmakers approve the measure.

“There is a clear crime of treason and your request can never be rejected by our government,” says Erdogan speaking through his translator. “But of course it will take a parliamentary decision for that to take action in the form of a constitutional measure so leaders will have to get together and discuss it, and if they accept to discuss it then I as president will approve any decision that comes out of the parliament.”

Conducted at the presidential palace in Istanbul, Erdogan also tells CNN he’s calling for extradition of Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen from the U.S., what happened the night of the coup attempt – including turning to social media to get his message out – and why it “never crossed” his mind he would be ousted as president.

New Ipsos Affluent Survey Middle East results: CNN is the Middle East’s #1 international news channel

CNN is again named as the #1 international news channel in daily, weekly and monthly reach in the Ipsos Affluent Survey Middle East.

The independent industry research study shows that the CNN International TV channel reaches 21% of the Middle East’s elite population* every month. This is well ahead of Al Jazeera English (16% reach), BBC World News (12%), CNBC (10%) and Sky News (9%) **. All other international news brands are even further behind.

CNN’s monthly reach across the Middle East increases to 28% when its digital properties are added to the scale of linear TV***.

CNN is also the #1 international news brand across the region in monthly cross-platform reach amongst core audience segments of Influential Opinion Leaders (41% reach across Middle East), Luxury Consumers (33% reach), Business Decision Makers (38% reach), High Income Earners (45% reach) and International Business Travellers (37%)****. Again – this is far ahead of all other international news competitors.

“CNN has made a sustained commitment to the Middle East for many years now,” said Rani Raad, President, CNN International Commercial. “We launched CNN Arabic and have continued to invest in the service; in the last year we have unveiled new studios and facilities at our major production hubs in Abu Dhabi and Dubai; and we have moved our flagship show Connect the World to be produced and broadcast from the region. This commitment puts CNN in the unique perspective of being able to uncover stories for and about the region as part of our wider output as the world’s news leader. We are proud that this approach across TV and digital continues to resonate with Middle East audiences as well as our commercial partners across the region.” FULL POST

A national institution, with Queen Elizabeth II in attendance every day, Vance examines how Royal Ascot became the centrepiece of the British social calendar and a spectacle of fashion and style. FULL POST
