Time Magazine says it has completed a review of Fareed Zakaria's work and it has decided to reinstate his column.

A Time spokesman sent this statement to reporters:

"We have completed a thorough review of each of Fareed Zakaria's columns for Time, and we are entirely satisfied that the language in question in his recent column was an unintentional error and an isolated incident for which he has apologized. We look forward to having Fareed's thoughtful and important voice back in the magazine with his next column in the issue that comes out on September 7."

As KPCC reported, Zakaria was suspended earlier this month after he acknowledged lifting a passage in one of his columns from a New Yorker article. Zakaria apologized, saying it was a "terrible mistake."

Zakaria was also suspended from CNN after the incident.
