Guardian reporter accused of fabricating news about Egypt strengthens our previous positions

Sunday، 29 May 2016 - 05:06 PM

Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Ahmed Abu Zeid told a number of diplomatic editors that the accusation against a correspondent of The Guardian newspaper that he fabricated news and reports about the situation in Egypt is a clear indicator of the correctness of the positions that we have expressed more than once in the past about the inaccuracies and the lack of credibility of reports in the Guardian concerning the situation in Egypt.

The spokesperson added that while we appreciate that the newspaper has held the correspondent accountable, The Guardian will still be held accountable by Egyptian and international public opinion for correcting the false impressions and distortions of Egypt's image. He noted that the effort to correct this false image is much harder than just launching a lie or false allegation that harms an entire community and tarnishes its image.

The spokesperson concluded his statement saying that the Egyptian government will continue to monitor and follow up on what is reported about Egypt in the foreign media, and to address any inaccuracies or fabricated reports.
