Tanjug (Serbian Cyrillic: Танјуг) (Telegrafska agencija nove Jugoslavije, Telegraphic Agency of New Yugoslavia) was founded on November 5, 1943. It is now a Serbian news agency based in Belgrade.[2]

From 1975 to mid-1980s, Tanjug had a leading role in the Non-Aligned News Agencies Pool (NANAP), a collaborating group of news agencies of the Non-Aligned Movement.[2][3] The Yugoslav professionals helped equipping and training journalists and technicians in other NAM countries, mainly in Africa and South Asia.
