US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday reiterated his intention to visit Cyprus, in statements he made before his meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in Brussels.
“We have been talking about Cyprus quietly and thoughtfully over a period of time,” Kerry said. “We will continue that discussion. I will be visiting there at some point in the next months, we’ve been talking about that,” the US Secretary of State added.
He said Turkey was a key partner, particularly with the situation in Syria and in Iraq.
On his part, Davutoglu said that Turkey and the US were two allies, going through a very difficult process in the neighbouring regions of Turkey, in the Mediterranean, the Middle East, the Balkans and the Black Sea.
“Now it is time to consult more frequently, act together as two strategic allies, and that cooperation will continue in all things and all challenges,” he said.
