Turkey began the transition to Türkiye as its internationally recognized official name in English in December, when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a memorandum requesting that the public adopt Türkiye to describe the country in all languages.

Erdogan noted at the time, “Türkiye is accepted as an umbrella brand for our country in national and international settings.” “Türkiye represents and expresses the Turkish people’s culture, civilisation, and values the best.”

Erdogan also recommended businesses to label their exported items with “made in Türkiye” and told government entities to use Türkiye in their correspondence.

Following a request from Ankara, the United Nations has changed the name of the Republic of Turkey’s country within the organization from “Turkey” to “Türkiye.”

According to UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu wrote to Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday, requesting that “Türkiye” be used instead of “Turkey” in all matters.
