Announcement of Significant Progress in Cyprus Negotiations

Press Statement
Philip J. Crowley
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs
Washington, DC
April 2, 2010


We are encouraged by the two Cypriot leaders’ announcement that they have achieved significant progress in the Cyprus negotiations, and applaud both leaders for their courageous efforts in pursuing a settlement. President Obama and Secretary Clinton have underscored our support for a just and lasting settlement that reunifies the island into a bi-zonal and bi-communal federation. We support the leaders of both Cypriot communities in their ongoing efforts to reach a settlement under the auspices of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Good Offices Mission under Alexander Downer.
