Istanbul Chamber of Commerce chairman Uztürk Oran said that if MBC's decision to stop Turkish drama on its channels is a stand against Turkey, we as investors see it as increasing our resolve.
"There is great sympathy with the Turkish and Turkish dramas in this geographical region, and the main annoyance is the result," Oran said in a statement on Wednesday.
He pointed out that the decision to ban will be lost, because Turkish soap operas play an important role, and connect millions on television screens, not only in the Arab region, but in all parts of the world.
He stressed the lack of sufficient force to prevent Turkish production, and Abizaid: "The prohibition of our series means a decrease in the number of followers of these channels, and there are many channels that address the Arab world other than MBC."
The MBC group announced on Monday that its channels had stopped broadcasting Turkish drama, which has a high visibility across the Middle East.
"All Turkish dramas have been completely set off outside the group's channels in the Middle East and North Africa, starting from early March, until further notice," said Mazen Hayek, a spokesman for the group.
