China Global Television Network, CGTN (until 2016, CCTV International) is the international division of the state-owned media organization China Central Television (CCTV). CGTN broadcasts nine news and general interest channels in five languages. CGTN is registered under the State Council of the People's Republic of China and is under the control of the Propaganda Department of the Chinese Communist Party. The General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party Xi Jinping described CGTN's goal as to "tell China's story well."

Western press, journalists and advocacy groups, and others have accused CGTN of broadcasting propaganda and disinformation on behalf of the Chinese government.
