US VP Biden praises leaders over progress in talks

US Vice President Joe Biden has praised President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci over the  progress made towards a settlement of the Cyprus problem.

A readout says “the Vice President spoke by phone today with President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot Leader Mustafa Akinci” and “praised the leaders and their negotiating teams for their hard work and the historic progress they have made towards a settlement that would reunify Cyprus as a bizonal, bicommunal federation”.
