US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Visit Cyprus

UN Secretary of State – Mike Pompeo

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Cyprus on 7 January as he returns from a trip to Asia, according to Turkish Cypriot media.

Pompeo will have separate meetings with Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akıncı.

In a press release issued on 31 December, the State Department announced that Pompeo will travel to Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan between 3-7 January.

The Secretary will reaffirm to leaders of both communities continued US support for UN-facilitated Cypriot-led efforts to reunify Cyprus as a bizonal, bicommunal federation in line with UN Security Council Resolutions,” the press release concludes.

Negotiations have focused on a federal solution, based on the political equality of the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot sides, but Greek Cypriot intransigence and rejection of such a solution, including the Annan plan, has led to the emergence of other models.
