    Consultations on Cyprus continue

    by Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Nov 22 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan is deciding today with his special adviser Alvaro de Soto his next moves on Cyprus, at a meeting in The Hague.

    The UN and other key players are adamant that peace talks on a UN proposal as a basis for negotiations on a comprehensive settlement begin as soon as possible and indicate that an end must be given to the delay caused by the absence from the political scene of ailing Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, who is recovering in a New York hospital from open heart surgery.

    No to a referendum should not jeopardize accession, says Markides

    Nicosia, Nov 22 (CNA) -- A negative vote in a referendum on an agreed political settlement of the Cyprus question, on the basis of a UN proposal, should not relate to the Republic's accession to the European Union, Attorney General Alecos Markides said here today.

    He also said that there will not be any solution unless negotiations on the UN proposal, submitted to the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides last week, take place.

    Speaking after a meeting of a subcommittee of the National Council, he said President Glafcos Clerides was briefed on the work carried out by experts in relation to arrangements proposed by the UN with regard to the territorial issue.

    The Attorney General refused to comment or characterise the actual content of the proposal, saying it will be studied further.

    He added that clarifications will be sought from the UN on many issues and noted that there are continuous consultations on the matter.

    ''What we are seeking to clarify is to see what exactly the UN had in mind as they were noting down specific issues contained in the Secretary General's proposal,'' Markides said, adding that in the negotiation one has to be certain about the content of the specifics of the proposal.

    Asked if he was sure there would be negotiations on the UN proposal, he replied ''if there are no negotiations, then there will be no settlement.''
