    UN says Cyprus solution plan void if not approved in referenda

    Larnaca, Apr 6 (CNA) - A Cyprus settlement plan proposed by the UN would be null and void if it is not approved at referenda to be held on April 24 on the two sides of the island, the UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto said today.

    Speaking at Larnaca Airport on arrival in Cyprus in view of the referenda, de Soto appealed to the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot people to read and calmly assess the plan, noting that it was improved during talks in Burgenstock, Switzerland, for both sides.

    The Peruvian diplomat said he briefed the UN Security Council on developments and stopped off in Dublin where he met Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern, who holds the rotating Presidency of the European Union.

    ''I know that I come back to the island at a very delicate moment. On each side, there is a great deal of internal deliberation going on in advance of the referenda on 24 April. This is as it should be. As the Secretary-General said in Burgenstock, the decision is now up to the people, and rightly so. We have no intention of interfering in that democratic decision,'' de Soto said.
