2006-07-21 12:19:41

Nicosia, Jul 21 (CNA) ? US State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack has said there are some reasonable hopes that there might be some possibilities for moving forward to come to some mutually acceptable solution to the Cyprus question.

Replying to a question, on the occasion of the 32nd anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, McCormack said "there have been some recent discussions concerning Cyprus, and we have some reasonable hopes that there might be some possibilities for moving forward to come to some mutually acceptable solution."

"So that is where our efforts are. I think that with this, as in many conflicts, there's far too much dwelling on the past and not enough on looking forward on how you actually solve the problems for the betterment of the people involved. So that's where our efforts are -- that's where our efforts are going to be," he added.
