Social networks, initially perceived as symbols of freedom, have gradually turned into one of the main threats to democracy, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in a video message to the participants of the Information Technology Conference in Istanbul.

He explained that the more popular social media became, the more “lies and disinformation” there were.

“This problem has gone beyond the national security of individual States to the extent of a global security threat”, RIA Novosti quotes the Turkish leader.

The Head of State assured that the authorities were doing their everything to protect citizens, especially the most vulnerable, from these lies and disinformation without depriving them of “the right to receive accurate and impartial information”.
