Turkey refuses to use Google and Gmail
Turkey is working to launch its own national search engines and mail services are compatible with the national culture. This was stated by the communications Minister of the country Ahmet Arslan in an interview for the NTV channel reports Turkey Blocks.
The official drew attention to the urgency of this task. According to him, the user data must be stored in Turkey to provide a complete analysis of communication in the country. The details of the plan, such as the name of the new services, their branding and organizational structure, he did not said.
