"A matter of honor for us to do a job that would normally be done in the West"

The news is not interesting in itself but how it is presented: "The Khaleej Times, an English-language daily newspaper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is hosting and training five Sudanese journalists in professional journalism standards and techniques. Editor-in-Chief Mohammed Galadari said the paper was honored to be selected to train a young generation of journalists. "It is a matter of honor for us to be doing a job that would normally be done in the West," he writes in his column.
