North Cyprus News - Cyprus Today 22 January 2022

The North Cyprus News on the front page of Cyprus Today 22 January 2022 is full of fairly trivial ‘news’. The top of the list is the surprising news that people have lived in North Cyprus for a long time without bothering to learn the language and complained that some of the locals couldn’t understand them. Just imagine if a Turkish Cypriot came to live in the UK and complained that way.
