Turkey's foreign minister says U.S. Vice President Joe Biden's visit to ethnically split Cyprus next week sends an important message of American support for renewed talks aimed at unifying the island. Ahmet Davutoglu says Biden's three-day trip the first by a U.S. vice president in 52 years "isn't an ordinary visit." Davutoglu was speaking at a press conference Saturday after talks with Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu.
