The whole announcement from Psychogios Publications:
Dear readers, we are very sorry for the mistake in our publication “I am learning and exploring: Europe” and we are withdrawing it from the market by proceeding with correction and reprinting.
Obviously, the occupied territories can not be translated as “belonging” to Turkey.
Obviously, the translator’s mistake should not have escaped our curator either.
We have published many titles about our Cyprus and we understand the magnitude of the mistake, especially in a children’s edition that passes messages to our children.
We apologize again and declare that the product was downloaded from our site and from tomorrow it will be withdrawn from the entire market.
