Date: 04/20/2009 Description: Remarks by Secretary Clinton and Cyprus Foreign Minister Marcos Kyprianou before their meeting. State Dept Photo SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, I am very happy to welcome the minister here today. He and I had a chance to meet during the EU-U.S. summit in Prague. And we obviously have a lot to discuss and a number of matters of interest, but we’re pleased to have such an opportunity so early in our Administration.


FOREIGN MINISTER KYPRIANOU: Thank you very much, and I’d like to – I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to meet twice with you within a fortnight, and I would say moving into a phase of even closer and better cooperation between our countries.
