    France regrets result of Cyprus referendum

    Nicosia, Apr 25 (CNA) France expressed regret over the result of the referendum held yesterday on the island, but renewed its support to the UN Secretary-Generals efforts for a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    A Foreign Ministry spokesman said France hopes that SG Kofi Annan would pursue his mission of good offices for a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    In a statement, the spokesman said ''France notes the results of the referenda in Cyprus which ended in the rejection of the Annan Plan for the islands reunification by one of the parties. It regrets that this result will not allow the accession of a reunited Cyprus in the EU, something which France always favoured.

    France renews its support to the efforts undertaken by the UN Secretary General. It wishes that Kofi Annan will continue to pursue his mission of good offices to reach a solution to the Cyprus problem, the French spokesman said.

    ''Cyprus' accession to the EU, on May 1, will not assume its full significance until such time that the two communities are reconciled,'' it was noted.

    Within this context, France hopes that the Commission, in accordance with the conclusions of the Copenhagen European Council of December 2002, proposes that proper measures be taken to promote the economic development of the northern part of the island and bring it closer to the Union, the spokesman concluded.
