- The Washington Times - Friday, October 3, 2014


As I reviewed the series of articles and inserts The Washington Times recently devoted to the Turkish-Cypriot view of the world, I wondered whether the paper’s journalistic integrity led you to challenge any of the statements made in those pages.

For example, did you question what specific steps Ozdil Nami and his occupation regime have taken to prove their commitment to peace in the latest round of negotiations? Have they accepted or even recommended confidence-building measures? No. Have they asked Turkish occupation troops to leave the island? No. Have they sworn off attempts to make the division of Cyprus permanent by seeking recognition of their pseudo-state? No.

It is incredible that a newspaper would just allow itself to be used in such a manner. I hope accurate reporting on Cyprus is in the offing after this.
