North Cyprus News - Cyprus Today 8th August 2020

North Cyprus News - Cyprus Today 8th August 2020North Cyprus News on the front page of Cyprus Today on 8th August 2020 includes an article saying that the water pipeline from Turkey has ‘run dry’. Well actually, it hasn’t. The pipe was damaged in Alsancak and as far as you can tell the damage is now repaired. This is an excellent use of panic headlines and the assumption that many people don’t read much more detail. It also provokes a ‘told you couldn’t trust Turkey’ response from those who already believe that.

Greatstone: PM to Broker ‘win-win deal’ – Speaking to Cyprus Today, Prime Minister Ersin Tatar said he would ask his political and legal affairs department to “re-examine what can be done to reach a win-win situation between the parties”. “Unfortunately, our previous attempts to bring about a friendly settlement between the buyers and the land owner failed.
