    Nicosia, Sep 9 (CNA) - US Charges d'Affaires in Cyprus Jane Zimmerman has said the Republic of Cyprus's recognition by Turkey, in the framework of the latter's European course, rests with the members of the EU.

    Speaking to the press after a meeting with Cypriot Minister of Education and Culture Pefkios Georgiades, Zimmerman said ''we believe that Turkey's accession and the negotiation process and eventually getting Turkey on the path to join the EU is a way to promote the kind of reform that is much needed in Turkey and makes the country a better neighbour and a force for stability in the region rather than leaving the future up in question''.
