    US official says settlement should precede reconstruction

    Nicosia, May 29 (CNA) - Director of the US Agency for International Development Andrew Natsios said today that reconstruction and reconciliation on the island were not the solution to the Cyprus problem and that a settlement should be found in order to make progress.

    Speaking after a meeting with President of the House of Representatives Demetris Christofias, Natsios expressed the readiness of the US administration to contribute financially to a possible Cyprus settlement.

    Welcoming Natsios to Cyprus, Christofias wished him to return to the island, reunited with US assistance.

    He said Natsios is head of the US special department that gives financial assistance to various countries facing problems and he is now in Cyprus to visit sites where US help is being put to use, such as the Apostolos Andreas Monastery in the Turkish-occupied areas.
