TeliaSonera commenting Turkcell´s release

Turkcell has today announced that an Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting
will be held on October 30, 2003 in Istanbul to elect all seven members
of Turkcell Board of Directors. In its notice to Turkcell, one of the
company's two statutory auditors stated that the Extraordinary
Shareholders Meeting was being called "due to the Board of Directors
being unable to agree upon important and strategic decisions for
Turkcell".

In general, TeliaSonera has not disagreed on board decisions. However,
the Turkcell board has been unable to agree on some issues concerning
related party transactions.
