RÚV English Radio


Every week, the foreign news desk here at RÚV produces a radio program, and a podcast, about foreign affairs and world events. The programme is called Heimskviður, and is broadcast on Rás 1 on Saturday afternoons. Many of the interviews that are recorded happen in English, and here on the RÚV English Podcast, we'll occasionally play some of those interviews, in full, in English.

Last weekend - and before the tragic earthquake which has caused such devastation in Turkey and Syria - Björn Malmquist, Foreign Correspondent at RÚV and my The Week In Iceland guest this week (see episode 7), looked at politics in Turkey, focusing on the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections in May, with an interview with Asli Aydintasbas - she is a well known analyst at the Brookings Institute in Washington, she's a former television journalist with CNN Turkey and writes opinion columns for the Washington Post. Asli told Bjorn about what's happening in Turkey, about President Erdogan and his party, the AKP, and their standing in the polls now, three and a half months before the election.
