    [02] Government Spokesman - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Sep 9 (CNA) -- The government believes there is an upgraded US interest in efforts for a solution to the Cyprus problem, which is evident in meetings of American officials with high-ranking Turkish representatives, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said today.

    Papapetrou said a statement by American Ambassador to the UN Richard Holbrooke that the interlocutor of the US is Ankara and not the Turkish Cypriot community leader "basically adopts our long standing position that the decision-making centre is Ankara".
