    Nicosia, Mar 5 (CNA) -- National Council members will accompany Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos to The Hague where the President is to meet UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on March 10, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides announced here today.

    The Council, the top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus question, which met today for over four hours, exchanged views about a UN peace plan and discussed the latest developments in the Cyprus question, ahead of Monday's meeting.

    Secretary General sends letters to guarantor powers

    By Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Mar 5 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has written to the prime ministers of Greece, Turkey and Britain inviting them to be represented at a meeting on Monday in The Hague at a level appropriate to the importance of his meeting with the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides.

    The Secretary General has said he was pleased with the support he received from the Security Council for his efforts to help find a negotiated settlement in Cyprus and said he looks to the three guarantor powers to provide strong support for a successful outcome of his meeting on Monday.

    Decision to take into account interests of Cyprus, says President

    Larnaca, Mar 5 (CNA) -- The Greek Cypriot side will decide on holding a referendum on a UN peace proposal taking into consideration primarily the interests of the people of Cyprus and specifically the interests of the Greek Cypriots, President Tassos Papadopoulos stressed here today.

    Speaking on his way to Athens for a meeting with Greek prime minister Costas Simitis, Papadopoulos said the decision of the Turkish Cypriot side on the matter is relevant but it is not the determining factor as far as the Greek Cypriot side is concerned.

    ''We have told the UN Secretary General that we will be at The Hague to give him our response to his request. The main criterion for our decision will be the interests of the people of Cyprus and specifically the interests of the Greek Cypriots,'' he said.

    The President was speaking as he prepares for a crucial meeting tomorrow in Athens with Simitis and in anticipation of a second meeting of the National Council on Saturday, before Monday's encounter with Annan at The Hague.
