US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland visited President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades on Tuesday to wish him a speedy recovery as he recuperates from heart surgery, a State Department official has said.
She also expressed continued U.S. support for the Cyprus settlement process, conducted under the auspices of the UN, to reunify the island as a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation, the official added.
President Anastasiades is in New York, recovering from open heart surgery. He is due back home on Sunday or Monday.
