    The solution of the Cyprus problem must be a Cypriot solution, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Matthew Bryza has stressed, noting at the same time that his country is not part of the negotiating process aiming at reuniting the island. Bryza, who is visiting Cyprus between January 13-15, met on Tuesday Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou, who briefed him in detail about the latest developments in the Cyprus talks. Speaking after the meeting, he said that I have been listening very carefully to what friends and collogues in the Republic of Cyprus have said about how they want to contact this negotiations.

    My country has been modest and quiet and listening and ready to provide assistance wherever we can. After my visit here, I have the opportunity to go to Ankara, where I would like to build on whatever I learn here, to try to further understanding between the two sides in a modest quiet way, he added. He noted that we are not part of the negotiations, we dont aspire to be part of it. The solution which will come will have to be designed and built exclusively by the people who live here in Cyprus and must be a Cypriot solution.

    If there is an opportunity to do something that helps improve communication, we will listen to our friends and do whatever we can, but we are simply at this point trying to help those who are really involved and that is you, Cypriot people, he pointed out. In response to a question on how optimistic he is that there could be a deal in Cyprus this year, he said that we are very much hope that this will be the year. I dont know if I am optimistic or not. I mean, I am humbly here again one more time listening and trying to validate our own ideas that we with our excellence Ambassador developed.
