Nicosia, Sep 30 (CNA) - The US Embassy in Nicosia has four major priorities with regard to Cyprus, Ambassador Michael Klosson has said, adding that Washington supports Cyprus' accession to the European Union.

Speaking after a courtesy call on the leader of Democratic Rally party Nicos Anastasiades, Klosson said the US supports the UN Secretary General and his good offices mission to help bring about a comprehensive settlement and resolve the Cyprus matter.

''The second priority is to promote stronger counter-terrorism cooperation and the third is to build on law enforcement cooperation,'' he said. Outlining the fourth priority, he said it aims at building stronger commercial business ties.|

Welcoming the new US Ambassador, Anastasiades said he was ''absolutely satisfied'' with the positions Washington is adopting with regard to a Cyprus settlement and the country's EU membership.

He said they discussed these two issues as well as other international problems.
