    President: Annan ready to respond to sides, if his terms are satisfied

    Larnaca, Dec 11 (CNA) -- President Tassos Papadopoulos believes that UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is ready to respond to requests by the two sides in Cyprus to resume negotiations, provided that the terms he set out earlier this year to the sides are met.

    The Cypriot President also said that he could not predict the outcome of Sunday's "parliamentary elections" in the Turkish-occupied northern part of Cyprus.

    President Papadopoulos was speaking at Larnaca Airport before leaving for Brussels to participate in the Intergovernmental Conference and the European Union summit.

    ''The Secretary General is ready to respond to the wishes of the two sides to resume negotiations under the terms he himself set out last April,'' the President said, when invited to comment on remarks by UN press spokesman in Nicosia that Kofi Annan remains committed to his good offices mission in Cyprus.

    Annan said in a report in April that he wanted to see genuine commitment from the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot side that they would reengage in talks to reach a settlement and put his peace proposal on a comprehensive settlement to separate referenda. Annan also said he wants to see real commitment from Greece and Turkey.

    Asked if the Greek Cypriot side is ready to define a date for a referendum, the Cypriot President pointed out that the Annan plan is not complete to be put to the people and explained there are many blanks that have to be filled, such as the issue of security.

    Invited to comment on the ''parliamentary elections'' in occupied Cyprus, he said it would be very difficult to make any predictions about the outcome of the poll.

    Referring to the Brussels meetings, he said discussions, scheduled to conclude on Saturday, may run into Sunday as there exist many differences among EU partners on the proposed constitution for Europe.

    He also said that the Cypriot delegation has had three invitations for different alliances with regard to the Intergovernmental Conference but cautioned against any possible wrong move on such matters that might create problems.
