As he said, Mr. Blinken congratulated the Minister of Foreign Affairs Ioannis Kasoulidis for his return to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and reiterated the US commitment to deepen the cooperation with the Republic of Cyprus. Among other things, he continued, the two Ministers talked about the 3 + 1 mechanism with Greece and Israel and jointly expressed the view for a return to the agreement on political dynamics.

The two ministers, Mr. Dimitriou said, discussed a number of bilateral and regional issues, including the importance of co-ordinating actions in support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. They also stressed the importance of increasing scientific cooperation on issues such as climate change and emerging technologies through the forthcoming signing of a bilateral Agreement on Science and Technology.

The US Secretary of State expressed the United States' continued support for efforts to resolve the Cyprus issue under the auspices of the United Nations, in a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with political equality for the benefit of all Cypriots, and Mr. Kasoulides conveyed the President's Varosia, concluded Mr. Dimitriou.
