    President Clerides - US Ambassador

    Nicosia, Aug 9 (CNA) -- US Ambassador in Nicosia Donald Bandler believes there is much preparatory work to be done between now and the resumption of the UN-led Cyprus proximity talks in early September, in New York, and has assured that the US is determined to continue working and make a success out of this process.

    Ambassador Bandler said the US effort will focus on all core issues, which are interelated, and dismissed press suggestions that Washington focuses on territory, adding that a comprehensive settlement needs to be negotiated.
