    New York, Nov 16 (CNA) Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktashs return to the occupied north of Cyprus was cancelled as the T/C leader is suffering from a viral infection.

    AKEL to discuss Annan plan, opposes timetable proposed

    Nicosia, Nov 16 (CNA) Left wing party AKEL pledged to examine with all due seriousness the solution plan which UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has submitted to the two sides in Cyprus for an overall settlement to the Cyprus problem.

    However, it expressed its discontent ''with the strong pressure attempted to be exercised against the Greek Cypriot side by the timetable proposed as well as by the clear-inter-link of Cyprus European course to the possible solution or non-solution.''

    The position is outlined in a resolution approved during a political meeting organised by AKEL to condemn the 19th anniversary of the unilateral declaration of independence by the Denktash regime in the Turkish occupied north of Cyprus.

    In a resolution to the UN Secretary General the political meeting organised by AKEL denounced the continuing occupation by Turkish troops of territories of the Republic of Cyprus as well as Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktashs and Ankaras secessionist actions, the culmination of which was the proclamation of the regime on November 15, 1983.

    Simitis and Clerides analyse and assess UN plan

    by Maria Myles

    Athens, Nov 16 (CNA)--- Greek Premier Costas Simitis said here today that the Greek Cypriot side would decide on the way it will negotiate on a UN proposal for a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus as well as on the goal it is seeking through these negotiations.

    Speaking after 90-minute long discussions with Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides, Simitis said the current juncture must be seized and called for consensus and unity, stressing that a solution that is not satisfactory or workable cannot be accepted.

    The Greek Premier also said prolonging the solution or the current division of Cyprus is not an option as they might lead to problems, adding that an effort will be made to amend the negative points in the UN proposal, submitted to the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot side last week.

    President Clerides agreed with all that Simitis had said and added that both sides in Cyprus will try to amend certain points in the UN plan. He expressed the view that if there is political will, it is possible to achieve an agreement in principle before the EU summit in Copenhagen.

    He also said that nothing is agreed in this process of negotiations until everything is agreed.

    In his opening remarks, Simitis said that they discussed the reply Cyprus National Council will give to the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on whether it accepts to negotiate on the proposal he has put forward.
