    Cyprus President replies to Annan

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    Nicosia, Jun 8 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has sent a letter to the UN by which he gives answers to what the UN Secretary General says in his report on his mission of good offices for Cyprus. The letter will circulate as an official UN document.

    According to diplomatic sources, an annex of 13 pages is attached to the seven-page letter, by which Papadopoulos answers point by point to Annan's references on the stance of the Greek Cypriot side and President Papadopoulos.

    In the letter Papadopoulos explains the reasons why the Greek Cypriot side could not accept the Annan plan for a Cyprus settlement as it did not cover its basic concerns but covered the basic Turkish positions.

    The UN Security Council will be briefed today on UN SGs report on the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) and his report on his good offices mission.

    Cyprus positive on EU proposal for repetition of Euro-Elections

    Nicosia, Jun 8 (CNA) - The Cypriot government is positive towards the European Commission's proposal to the European Council that elections for the European Parliament may be repeated on the island in the event of a settlement of the Cyprus problem, before the term of the new Cypriot EMPs expires, so that Turkish Cypriots may participate in the procedure.

    Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said the whole issue would be discussed at the EU Council of Ministers and noted that the aim is a correct and clear definition of the decision in order to avoid any complications.

    Greek Cypriots expect efforts to continue towards settlement

    Nicosia, Jun 8 (CNA) -- Cypriot Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides said today that the Greek Cypriot side expected efforts to continue towards a final settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    Asked what was expected from the UN Security Council discussion on the UN Secretary's report on his good offices mission in Cyprus, Chrysostomides said ''we want the Security Council to further open the window the Secretary General left open.''

    He added that the Security Council ''must definitely see to the compliance with resolutions 541 and 550'' and make sure that further efforts to financially upgrade the Turkish Cypriots do not contradict international law and the basis of previous UN resolutions.

    UN Adviser says failed Cyprus effort produced achievements

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Jun 8 (CNA) - The UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, told the Security Council today that while the ultimate outcome of the effort to reach a settlement of the Cyprus problem has not been a success, a great deal has nevertheless been achieved.

    Speaking before the presentation to the UN Security Council of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's report on his good offices mission to Cyprus, de Soto said that although the final opportunity to ensure that Cyprus should accede to the EU as a united country rather than divided has been missed, the achievements of the whole effort should be built upon and noted that the Security Council has a role to play in this direction.

    He also said Annan received ''late yesterday afternoon, from the Greek Cypriot side, a letter outlining comments regarding the Secretary General's report on his mission of good offices.''
