President Nicos Anastasiades had a telephone conversation with United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides tweeted late on Tuesday.

According to Christodoulides, the two men spoke about bilateral relations, the stalled Cyprus problem talks, and regional issues.
