U.S. Embassy Cyprus statement on Cypriot Leaders meeting in New York

The United States welcomes the announcement that the leaders and relevant stakeholders will meet in Geneva this month to discuss the remaining steps to reunify the island as a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation.  Based on the considerable progress made by the Cypriot leaders, we continue to believe this is the best chance in decades for Cypriots to achieve a lasting and comprehensive solution.  We urge all parties, including the guarantors, to show the necessary flexibility and creativity to arrive at an agreement that benefits all Cypriots.
