Tanjug (/'tʌnjʊg/) (Serbian Cyrillic: Танјуг) is Serbia's state news agency based in Belgrade.[2] Founded in November 1943 as Yugoslavia's official news agency, its name is an acronym of its full original native name Telegrafska agencija nove Jugoslavije ("Telegraphic Agency of the New Yugoslavia").

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.
