    Russia says UN plan not considering Cypriot communities' views

    Moscow, April 26 (CNA) - Moscow, through its Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov, expressed regret that the plan presented by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan for a Cyprus settlement was prepared without taking into consideration the views of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities.

    Commenting on the result of Saturday's referendum on the Annan Plan, which was rejected by the Greek Cypriot community, Lavrov said ''it reflected the will, expression of the Cyprus people,'' and therefore ''the plan of Kofi Annan has not passed, even though the founding resolution envisaged the consideration for opinions of both sides.''

    Council Conclusions on Cyprus

    by Nicos Bellos

    Luxembourg, Apr 26 (CNA) -- The Council of Foreign Ministers of the European Union, which met here today, issued the following statement on Cyprus:

    ''The Council noted the results of the referenda in Cyprus on 24 April 2004 and expressed its strong regret that the accession to the EU of a united Cyprus will not now be possible on 1 May. The Council expressed its deep appreciation for the determined and sustained efforts of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and his colleagues in the search for a comprehensive solution of the Cyprus problem. The Council also welcomed the contribution made by Greece and Turkey. It expressed its determination to ensure that the people of Cyprus will soon achieve their shared destiny as citizens of a united Cyprus in the European Union.

    The Turkish Cypriot community have expressed their clear desire for a future within the European Union. The Council is determined to put an end to the isolation of the Turkish Cypriot community and to facilitate the reunification of Cyprus by encouraging the economic development of the Turkish Cypriot community. The Council invited the Commission to bring forward comprehensive proposals to this end, with particular emphasis on the economic integration of the island and on improving contact between the two communities and with the EU. The Council recommended that the 259 million euro already earmarked for the northern part of Cyprus in the event of a settlement now be used for this purpose.
