 US continues to support UN efforts for a Cyprus settlementThe United States remains committed to the United Nations effort to find a just and lasting settlement to the Cyprus problem, the US President George Bush stressed in his bimonthly progress report to Congress on the Cyprus question, covering the period 1 June - 31 July 2002.
Mr Bush pointed out that "direct talks on the island between Greek Cypriot leader Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash continue under United Nations auspices, although the leaders failed to meet their stated objective of a comprehensive settlement by June 2002. As in past reporting periods, Special Cyprus Coordinator Thomas G. Weston and U.S. Ambassador to Cyprus Donald K. Bandler provided diplomatic support to the process. The United States remains committed to the United Nations effort to find a just and lasting settlement to the Cyprus problem."

The President of the Republic, Mr Glafcos Clerides, will open the two events.
