Why did TURKEY change his Name?? | What is the new name of TURKEY??



Turkey will now be known as Turkiya

Following Ankara's request to change the country's name, Turkiya will now be honored by its new name at the United Nations. 

Multitudinous transnational associations will also be asked to change Turkey's name. The name change is part of a crusade by Turkish President Rajab Tayyip Erdogan to give the country a new identity.
