    President says Cyprus settlement EU demand

    Nicosia, Sep 30 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said today that with Cyprus' accession to the EU, the island's political problem takes on a European perspective and prospect, thus making a viable and functional settlement the wish, demand and aim of the EU.

    Speaking at a special gathering in Limassol to celebrate tomorrow's anniversary of Cyprus' independence and the establishment of the Republic of Cyprus, President Papadopoulos made clear that the Greek Cypriot side accepts a twice-revised UN peace plan as a basis for negotiations to solve the problem, noting that ''we do not pursue to overturn the context, the philosophy and the parametres of the plan, nor to remove the rights and privileges that the plan offers our Turkish Cypriot compatriots''.

    Referring to the 1974 Turkish invasion and subsequent occupation of the island's northern third, President Papadopoulos said the Republic of Cyprus has managed to effectively protect its entity and economy.

    He added that Cyprus' accession to the EU meant that ''the Cyprus problem now takes on its European perspective and prospect''.

    President Papadopoulos said the Cyprus problem ''is now a European matter, not as an abhorrent burden but as an issue of reference and an element of interest'', adding that a viable and functional solution of the Cyprus problem ''now becomes the wish, demand and aim of the EU''.

    Referring to the solution plan proposed by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, the President clarified that ''we accept the Annan plan as a basis for negotiations'' and expressed hope that ''through negotiations, without terms and preconditions, we will achieve improvements to the Annan plan, which will make the solution of the Cyprus problem more functional and consequently viable''.

    He added that ''we do not pursue to overturn the context, philosophy and parametres of the plan, nor necessarily to remove the rights and privileges the plan offers our Turkish Cypriot compatriots''.

    ''All our suggestions for improvements are within the parametres of the Annan plan and its philosophy and more and more people involved in the process recognise the viability of our arguments and the need for improvements, especially regarding the economic provisions of the plan and those regarding our constructive participation in EU procedures'', he said.
