In 2013, Turkey refused to take part in the song contest on the grounds that the voting system was unjust, APA reports citing Turkish media.
Turkey decided to return to the song contest Eurovision after the European Broadcasting Union has apologized and accepted the requirements of the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT).
TRT Director General Åženol Göka said the issues were not only due to the voting system, but also in relation to Turkey, adding that the country was dissatisfied with the policy of the EBU.
“Relationship should be built correctly. Italy and Roma have also been treated in such a way. Bulgaria also refused to compete at the song contest. Our requirements will be accepted, and we will take part in the contest,” he noted.
