    UN chief responds to Cyprus President's letter

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Jun 17 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has sent a reply letter to Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos, stressing that he takes a different view from him on most of the ground covered in Papadopoulos' recent letter to him and its annex.

    Annan thanked Papadopoulos for his letter of 7 June 2004, about his report on his good offices mission on Cyprus, dated 28 May 2004, and for their meeting of 3 June 2004.

    ''As you will have inferred from my report, I take a different view from you on most of the ground covered in you letter and its annex,'' Annan said.

    ''I do stand fully by my report, including the narrative and the analysis contained therein, the appeals I have formulated and the recommendations I have put forward, to which I hope the Greek Cypriot side will respond positively,'' he added.

    Cyprus goverment stands by its positions concerning UNSG's report

    Nicosia, Jun 17 (CNA) -- The Cyprus government stands by its positions in its comments on the UN Secretary General's report on his good offices mission in Cyprus and for the views of those who drafted the report, Government Spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides has said.

    Invited to comment on a letter Kofi Annan sent to Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos as a reply to the letter Papadopoulos had sent to him earlier this month, with his remarks on Annan's report, Chrysostomides said the reply by the Secretary General was self-explanatory.

    ''It seems that he stands by his position. But we also stand by our views as regards the comments on the Secretary General's report, the views of those who drafted the report,'' he added.
