AHI Questions The Washington Times’ Relationship with “TRNC,” Requests Meeting

WASHINGTON, DC — The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) sent a letter to Mr. Thomas McDevitt, chairman of the board, The Washington Times, requesting a meeting to discuss the nature of the newspaper’s relationship with the illegal entity of the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.”

AHI President Nick Larigakis wrote the letter in response to five propaganda pieces about the “TRNC” published through the newspaper’s Advocacy Department on a single day, September 30, 2014.

“We were deeply disturbed by The Washington Times’ role in the distribution of blatant propaganda on behalf of an illegal entity, the ‘TRNC,’” Larigakis said. “We have several questions about the purpose of The Washington Times’ Advocacy Department and the newspaper’s relationship with the ‘TRNC’ through this department.”

The American Hellenic Institute is an independent non-profit Greek American public policy center and think tank that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
