And I want to welcome you here, Foreign Minister, and thank you for coming.

FOREIGN MINISTER KOZAKOU-MARKOULLIS: Madam Secretary, thank you very much. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to be here with you and discuss I think what will be a very interesting and important agenda that we have in front of us, dealing with issues of common interest and concern, (inaudible) Cyprus (inaudible), issues about presidency to the European Union, the Middle East, and our neighbors in north part of Africa, and the uprising in the Arab Spring. All these are very interesting issues, and I look forward to discussing them with you.
