The bilateral partnership between Cyprus and the US and prospects for regional cooperation on energy issues were discussed during a meeting between Foreign Affairs Minister Ioannis Kasoulides and US Senior Advisor for Energy Security at the State Department Amos Hochstein in Washington on Thursday.
Kasoulides who wraps up a visit in the US, wrote on Twitter that he had "a useful meeting" with Hochstein.
He said that they exchanged views on Clean Energy Cooperation, Cyprus-US bilateral partnership and prospects for regional cooperation on energy issues.
In a tweet earlier the Foreign Affairs Ministry said that Kasoulides also had a "productive meeting" with President Gregory Meeks and members of the House Foreign Relations Committee.
It added that he was "grateful for bipartisan support" to the deepening Cyprus-US relationship, the 3+1 cooperation, and to a viable solution to the Cyprus problem in line with UN Resolutions.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results.
