Nicosia, Jun 2 (CNA) - The government of the Republic of Cyprus welcomes the decision of the United States, as announced on 31 May 2006 by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, to participate in negotiations with Iran regarding Tehran's nuclear program.

It also welcomes yesterday's agreement between France, Germany, Britain, Russia, China and the United States regarding the submission of proposals to Iran.

''The Cyprus government strongly supports the finding of a peaceful solution to the issue of Iran's nuclear programme through the diplomatic route and hopes that every possible effort will be made so as to avoid a crisis which would have unforeseeable and destructive consequences on regional peace, stability and world economy,'' an official press release says.
