Kurdish radio programs began on April 1, while Armenian radio programs began on April 2.

Radyo 6 will air in Kurdish 24-hours a day, TRT said in a written statement.

Armenian programs would be broadcast everyday between 7.00-7.30 a.m. and 6.00-6.30 p.m. as part of "The Voice of Turkey" radio, the statement added.

The move comes as Ankara and Yerevan continue to engage in a normalization process between the two neighbors that for decades have had no diplomatic relations.

Turkey also recently took steps to boost the cultural and democratic rights of Kurds with the Jan. 1 launch of TRT-6, a TV channel that airs in Kurdish 24-hours a day.
