US policy on Cyprus not subject to change of US government
Larnaca, Nov 3 (CNA) -- The US policy on the Cyprus issue is not subject to changes in the US government, Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos has stated.
Speaking on departure for Brussels to attend the EU summit he also expressed the hope for a clear result in US elections so as the situation with the prolonged election recount in Florida in 2000, would not be repeated.
Responding to questions regarding the US policy on the Cyprus problem, President Papadopoulos said: ''I donít think that the US policy changes with a change in government. There are procedures and there are people appointed in responsible positions. In these posts changes may happen, but it is early and pointless on our part to make assumptions and express our preferences for the one or the other candidate''.
