    US Ambassador - Interview

    by Maria Myles

    Nicosia, Oct 29 (CNA) - The US and Cyprus have a lot in common, share the same values and both are bound to benefit from increasingly close ties, US Ambassador to Cyprus Donald Bandler believes, having lived and worked here for just over a year after he presented his credentials to President Glafcos Clerides.

    In an interview with CNA, Washington's top man on the island has said the US is working towards a settlement within the parameters foreseen over the years by the UN Security Council resolutions, a settlement that will bring more security, democracy and prosperity to all Cypriots and allow the parties not to compromise on fundamental principles.
