    Christofias says US to help solve Cyprus problem

    by Demetris Apokis

    Washington, Apr 18 (CNA) - Cyprus House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias told CNA that the US officials he met with during his visit to the United States, promised to step up efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.

    Christofias noted, however, that he did not expect that his visit to the US would change America's stance regarding Turkey. "What I expect is that they will hear us and finally take us into consideration, and that some moves will be made in this direction", he said, adding that "promises were made but they need to be followed up".

    The House President, who left Washington for London today, said he would be returning to Cyprus satisfied with his talks in the US, noting that US officials in the Administration and the Congress gave him a warm welcome and showed interest in Cyprus developments.

    Christofias said he requested US intervention to shift Ankara from its stance on the problem of Cyprus, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
