Nicosia, Dec 19 (CNA) -- US State Department's Spokesman Richard Boucher has reiterated the US support to the UN Secretary General's plan for a Cyprus settlement, noting that this is the solution that needs to be looked at now by all the parties.

Regarding statements by the Turkish side for a new plan it will release, Boucher said the US is interested in ideas and thoughts that the Turkish Government might have, but is looking for all the parties to support the Annan plan.

Asked during yesterday's briefing if the US does not support any other than the Annan plan for Cyprus, Boucher said ''the United States has consistently made clear our support for the Annan plan.''

''We believe that is the solution that needs to be looked at now by all the parties. We're obviously interested in ideas and thoughts that the Turkish Government might have, but we are looking for all the parties to support the Annan plan and to get back together and start working on that basis,'' he added.
