|IRIB protests to Turkey over anti-Iranian content of TV series||
TEHRAN -- Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) has recently lodged a protest with ATV, one of the most widely watched TV channels in Turkey, over screening some allegedly anti-Iranian scenes in the Turkish TV series “Valley of the Wolves”.
The protest was made in a letter sent by IRIB Center for International Affairs to the Turkish Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTUK).
“By highlighting a sensitive subject, the serial creates an unfavorable image of the Iranian Consulate and Iranian diplomats in Istanbul in some parts, which are completely untrue,” center director Mohammad Hosseini wrote in the letter.
He asked the RTUK to make every effort to improve the solidarity between the Iranian and Turkish nations.
“Valley of the Wolves” was mostly about an agent named Polat Alemdar who infiltrated into the mafia (becoming the partner of the mafia gunman Süleyman Çakir) after his plastic surgery. The scenario has direct and indirect references to Turkish politics and political history from a viewpoint of an undercover agent.
Some scenes of the TV series convey the impression that Iran is behind certain political events in Turkey.
