The noted book "War and Culture Heritage: Cyprus after the 1974 Turkish Invasion", which painfully describes the cultural pillaging and destruction in occupied Cyprus, was presented in the US capital's renowned National Press Club this week by its author, journalist Michael Jansen.
In her remarks, Jansen referred to the situation in the occupied territories as a crime against civilization and humanity, while she also referred to the looting of cultural treasures in Iraq and an illegal international antiquities trade.
The author was presented by Cyprus' ambassador to Washington Evripides Evriviades.
Jansen is also scheduled to speak on the same issue to US House of Representatives during a luncheon hosted by the Greek-American organization AHEPA.
