    Athens, Mar 6 (CNA) -- The Greek Cypriot side will be in The Hague on Monday at the invitation of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, not to give a yes or no answer to whether or not the two sides in Cyprus would put his third peace plan to separate referenda on March 30 but to discuss the issue, Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis said today, after a three-hour meeting in Athens with Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos.
