    Annan: One side is to blame for Cyprus deadlock

    By Apostolis Zoupaniotis

    United Nations, Mar 13 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has blamed Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash for the breakdown of the Cyprus peace talks in The Hague, noting he did not seem to seize the urgency of the work that had to be done in order to meet the deadline.

    Speaking at a joint press conference in The Hague Tuesday with Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, Annan explained that during a recent visit to Cyprus he asked the parties to meet in The Hague to answer one specific question: ''if they would be prepared to put my plan to a joint referenda in both the Turkish and the Greek Cypriot parts by 30 March to be able to, and if they were to approve the referenda, for united a Cyprus to accede to the European Union on 16 April.''

    However, he added, ''that was not possible'' because ''one party had indicated he would not put the plan to referendum and, of course, did not seem to seize the urgency of the work that had to be done for us to meet that deadline and so we did not get the results we wanted.''
