US reiterates support to the Cyprus peace process

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.
