Nicosia, Jan 18 (CNA) -- The Cypriot government is satisfied with the stance of the Russian Federation on the Cyprus problem.

Minister of Foreign Affairs George Iacovou said that ''from what we have been told in Moscow and Nicosia, the Russian policy on the Cyprus problem will continue without changes.''

Iacovou said President of the Republic Tassos Papadopoulos received the Russian Ambassador in Nicosia yesterday and discussed this issue with him.

''We have had a series of contacts. The President has seen the Ambassador of the Russian Federation. There were many diplomatic contacts in Moscow and Nicosia and we are satisfied that there is no change in the stance of Russia regarding the Cyprus problem,'' he said.

The Minister added that over the next six months President Papadopoulos would be visiting Moscow.

He clarified however that the visit has been planned for some time now and had nothing to do with the recent visit of the Turkish Prime Minister to Russia.
