Cypriot FM satisfied over meetings in Washington

Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou has expressed satisfaction over the first day of his contacts in Washington.

Kyprianou who arrived in the US capital on Wednesday, met House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President of the House Committee of Foreign Affairs, Joe Biden, Senator Robert Menendez and Congresswoman Olympia Snowe. All members of congress expressed interest over the latest Cyprus developments and offered to help in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.

He also met Congressman Frank Pallone, who said the US should persuade Turkey to help the Cyprus procedure, as well as John Sarbanes, Patrick Kennedy and Costas Bilirakis.

Kyprianou was accompanied by Cyprus’ ambassador to the US, Andreas Kakouris, the director of his office Kornelios Korneliou, the President of the Cyprus Federation Panicos Papanicolaou and Andrew Manatos, president of the National Coordinated Effort of Hellenes.

Replying to questions, Kyprianou said that “we are still in the early stages but I believe that the US can help to encourage Turkey to maintain a positive stance during the procedure, bearing in mind that it can exert great influence over Turkey than any other country”.

He said he explained the positions of President of the Republic Demetris Christofias that there is good will on our part as well as commitment for a solution to the Cyprus problem, as well as that there are some fundamental principles, which must be maintained.

Referring to those principles, Kyprianou said that these are the High Level Agreements and the July 8 2006 Agreement, noting that they must form the core of a solution.

Kyprianou’s contacts on Friday include a meeting with Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte who replaces Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other US officials.

Invited to comment on Ledra Street checkpoint, Kyprianou described as a ‘disappointing development” the problems that occurred at Ledra Street. He said that this should not surprise us because from the start of the procedure, there were problems due to the Turkish army.

“I hope that the Turkish army will maintain everything that was agreed between the two leaders and to allow the opening or Ledra Street, noting that “only the checkpoint is opening, not the road”.
