Francis Fannon in Nicosia

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources Francis Fannon said that the United States was unwavering on their commitment to support the right of the Republic of Cyprus to develop its resources in its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).
“We continue the long-standing position of the United States that we strongly support the right of the Republic of Cyprus to develop its resources in its EEZ. We are unwavering on that commitment”, said Fannon in an interview with the state-run CNA on the occasion of his visit to Cyprus last Friday.
At the same time, he said that the United States ”encourages the two communities to continue to work towards a comprehensive resolution and ensure that any and all proceeds from that mineral wealth are shared equitably” and added that ”the United States was seeking to engage with the countries of Eastern Mediterranean region and that he was planning to be back in Cyprus next year in order to continue faster that regional cooperation”.
