    Matthew Bryza, US State Department`s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, who is paying a four-day visit to Cyprus, had here Monday a series of contacts with Cypriot Foreign Ministry officials, Cyprus House President, and the leader of the main Greek Cypriot opposition party, during which he was briefed on the Greek Cypriot side`s views and positions on the Cyprus problem.

    Bryza, who arrived in Cyprus after visiting Ankara and Athens, met with Foreign Ministry`s Permanent Secretary Sotos Zakheos and Director of the Cyprus problem division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Erato Kozakou Markoulli. Later he had separate meetings with House President Demetris Christofias and main opposition party, DISI President Nicos Anastasiades. Bryza will have Tuesday meetings with the Turkish Cypriot leadership and will hold a press conference.

    In statements after meeting Bryza, Christofias said that the US official told him that US President George Bush has given him strict instructions that the Greek Cypriots will, as expressed at the April 2004 referendum on the Annan plan, must be respected and that a solution to the Cyprus question on the basis of a bi-communal bi-zonal federation should be promoted and not a solution on the basis of a confederation.

    Christofias also said that Bryza assured him that there is no issue of imposing the Annan plan or punishing the Greek Cypriots for rejecting the plan, as far as the US is concerned.
