US President Bill Clinton has expressed the conviction that "there will be further opportunities for progress" on the Cyprus problem.
In a reply letter to Councilor of London Borough of Barnet, Andreas Tambourides, the US President also says he is encouraged "that after a hiatus of more than two years, Greek and Turkish Cypriots came to New York last December under UN auspices to restart Cyprus talks."
He also thanks Tambourides for his support to his Administration's efforts "to resolve the Cyprus problem," noting, "we have spent considerable time and effort, here in Washington and in trips abroad, to encourage a fair, just and final resolution to the situation."
"I am convinced that there will be further opportunities for progress" the US President underlines in his letter.
In his letter to Clinton, Tambourides had expressed on behalf of all Greek Cypriots living in the London Borough of Barnet and the UK in general gratitude for his involvement towards the settlement of the Cyprus problem.
