US welcomes demining
Nicosia, Aug 12 (CNA) -- The US embassy here welcomed today the continuation of the deminining process along the UN-controlled buffer zone.
An embassy press release said that though demining is no substitute for a negotiated peaceful solution, it would contribute to a climate of trust.
''The US embassy welcomes the commencement of the next phase of demining along the buffer zone, and is pleased that both sides are actively cooperating with the UN on the process of demining,'' it said.
''While demining is no substitute for a comprehensive settlement, the embassy hopes it will contribute to the atmosphere of trust necessary for a peaceful, negotiated solution to the Cyprus problem,'' it concludes.
