Speaking in French through an interpreter, Ayrault assured of Frances support for a reunified Cyprus, without anachronistic divisions and said that a solution depends on Cypriots.

On his part, Kasoulides said Cyprus appreciates the cooperation with the French government and especially its traditional support and interest as a permanent member of the Security Council in the efforts for a solution to the Cyprus issue.
