Nuland expected to visit Cyprus mid-October

Victoria Nuland is set to meet Cyprus officials to discuss bilateral and regional issues

Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the US State Department, is expected to visit to Cyprus in mid-October.

CNA said it learned from a well-informed source in Washington, the date most likely for Nuland to visit would be October 14. According to the same sources, the aim of the visit is to express support on behalf of the US administration to the intensive settlement talks that are taking place between President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.

Influential members of the community in the US with contacts to the State Department said they received assurances that the US official would not exert pressure of any kind.

Initial plans also involved trips to Ankara and Athens by Nuland, but do not seem likely at this stage.
