    Council President: no influence on referenda from outside

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Apr 13 (CNA) -- The current President of the Security Council has said that no attempt should be made from the outside to influence the outcome of the referenda on a UN plan for a comprehensive Cyprus settlement.

    Gunter Pleuger, of Germany, said that the Council had already discussed Cyprus and he had made a statement on behalf of the Council saying that the Council thanked the Secretary General for his mediation in this case and that now the people of Cyprus had to decide.

    ''The underlying idea of this was that you cannot try to prejudge or to influence from the outside the outcome of the referenda that are being planned for the 24th (April). I think the Council was well advised not to try this because the reaction of the people that are taken that decision by themselves might be counterproductive,'' he added.

    US committed to Cyprus agreement

    Nicosia, Apr 13 (CNA) -- The international community and particularly the US are committed to ensuring that a UN plan on a political settlement in Cyprus works, US State Department spokesman Richard Boucher has said.

    Responding to questions, he said that ''there needs to be an opportunity for careful and full implementation'' of the plan.

    ''The international community and particularly the US is very committed to ensuring that this plan works, that all the parties to it fulfill their commitments, that we at the international community provide the assistance necessary to help people,'' he added.

    Boucher referred to a pre-donor's conference in Brussels on Thursday to which the US would be represented by State Department special coordinator on Cyprus Tomas Weston.

    ''We will go and make a substantial commitment. We intend to make a significant pledge. We are in touch with other potential donors to encourage them to go and show the support of the international community for this historic agreement,'' he said.

    Responding to questions, Boucher said Secretary of State Colin Powell had been actively in support of this conference and today he talked to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan about it.
