Remarks by Assistant Secretary Mitchell following his meeting with Turkish Cypriot Leader Akinci

Thank you all for being here.  I’m very happy to be here in Cyprus.  As most of you know, I had a good conversation earlier with Mr. Anastasiades and just now a very warm and extended conversation with Mr. Akinci in which we exchanged views.  I expressed our support for resumption of talks and look forward to staying engaged on these issues in the days ahead.
