The US supports the best chance in decades for a Cyprus settlement, the US State Department Deputy Spokeperson Mark Toner has said, highlighting however that as for timelines, that is something for Cypriots to decide.

Toner was replying to a question on the Secretary General`s optimism about a solution in Cyprus this year.

“The United States fully supports the UN-facilitated process under UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide,” he said.

As we have said, he added, “we are encouraged by the progress Cypriot leaders have made in recent months.”

“We continue to support efforts by the parties to reach a settlement to reunify the island as a bizonal, bicommunal federation, which would benefit all Cypriots as well as the wider region,” Toner continued.
