The second study describes the flow of news between the Arab States and Iran and Turkey. The various sections of this report offer information on news agencies in the region, international agencies, the research methodology, media outputs in Turkey, and the study findings. A concluding section of the paper contains nine recommendations for the Gulf News Agency in order to improve the news flow between that region and Europe. (FL)
