Blinken says US will be ‘fully engaged’ in Cyprus issue
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that American diplomacy will be “fully engaged” in the Cyprus issue, while testifying on Wednesday evening before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Responding to a question by Congressman David Cicilline, Blinken, from the Democratic Party, referred to the engagement of President Biden throughout his career in the Senate and when he was Vice President and said that the Cyprus issue is “something he takes very – very seriously.”
“We strongly support a comprehensive settlement that reunifies Cyprus in a bizonal bicommunal federation. We will engage in the effort to advance that prospect, including supporting the critical role of the United Nations, as well as direct American engagement in that effort. I think you will see American diplomacy fully engaged,” he said.
