The news media platform will be based in Berlin and will address the German audience in an era of increased far-right extremism across Europe.
"We are clearly positioning ourselves against right-wing radicalism and Islamophobia, as well as against all forms of discrimination. We are committed to a plural, liberal-democratic society," TRT Deutsch statement reads.
