    Kasoulides calls on Annan to assess the behaviour of two sides

    Larnaca, Mar 20 (CNA) -- Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has urged the UN Secretary General to take seriously into consideration the behaviour of the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides at the negotiating table, before he takes his next step.

    He said Annan's statement on the direct talks, that started here mid January, was an encouragement to both sides to make some headway in the negotiations in the remaining two or three meetings before the UN chief is briefed in early April by his Special Adviser Alvaro de Soto, who conducts the talks.

    "We hope that the UN Secretary General, in any future intervention, will take seriously into consideration the attitude of each side at the talks and will not act in the way he did in September 2000, bribing the side that causes difficulties at the expense of the side that does its job," Kasoulides said on his way to Sofia, to participate in a conference on European Union enlargement, organized by the British Foreign Office.
