Nicosia, Mar 28 (CNA) -- The Ukraine would like to see the question of Cyprus resolved soon and the country reunified, the country's Ambassador here Borys Humeniuk has said.

He also said that Cyprus is the largest foreign investor in the Ukraine, an official press release said here today.

Humeniuk met with Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides, who briefed him about the positions of the Greek Cypriot side on the resumption of talks and its readiness to return to the negotiating table for a speedy solution as well as government efforts to facilitate and offer assistance to the Turkish Cypriots.

He said Kiev respects the outcome of last April's referendum on a UN-proposed solution plan, rejected by the overwhelming majority of the Greek Cypriots and approved by 65 per cent of the Turkish Cypriots.

The Ukrainian diplomat said the two countries enjoy traditionally excellent relations in all sectors, noting that Cyprus plays a particularly important role in the economy of the Ukraine, being the largest foreign investor.
