    New US Ambassador presents credentials

    Nicosia, Aug 29 (CNA) - Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides emphatically said here Thursday that the government would not accept any proposals, which would be tantamount to legalising the invasion and occupation of Cyprus and would violate the human rights of all Cypriots.

    He was speaking during the presentation of the credentials of the new US ambassador to Cyprus, Michael Klosson, who conveyed the US commitment to promote a bizonal, bicommunal federation in Cyprus, suggesting, however, that "tough choices must be made".

    Presenting his credentials, Klosson noted that as Cyprus faces an "auspicious and historic moment an unprecedented chance for a brighter future for Cypriots across the island, the US has long believed that a just, durable and comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem is possible and would present many benefits to Cyprus and its people.
