Washington, Dec 21 (CNA) -- The solution plan for Cyprus is the Annan plan, US State Department spokesman Richard Boucher has said.

Replying to questions at his briefing yesterday Boucher said: ''as far as having a plan to solve the Cyprus problem, there is a plan. There has been a plan, the Annan plan. We supported it. The Turkish Cypriots voted in favor. The Greek Cypriots voted against''.

He reiterated the US wish ''to see the parties resolve their differences on that basis'', but noted that ''at this point, that's kind of where we stand''.
