    No open-ended engagement in Cyprus, says top UN envoy

    Nicosia, May 21 (CNA) -- The UN Secretary General is very reluctant to reengage in an open-ended way in the question of Cyprus unless there is a clear framework, his special adviser Alvaro de Soto has said, pointing out that any attempt to start reopening trade offs between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides would have no end to it.

    In an interview with CNA, Alvaro de Soto, who had conducted lengthy and arduous peace talks here, warned against starting peace talks from scratch, saying that the end result would not be much different than a plan Kofi Annan has presented the two sides on a comprehensive settlement.

    De Soto indicated that the Annan plan could be revived in spite of protestations by Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, who rejects the plan outright and describes it as dead and buried.

    The UN envoy also said that he has not been assigned other duties by the Secretary General but is busy with a couple of other issues. However, he stressed that he follows developments in Cyprus and said he would he willing to return to the island once there is an agreement by the parties to reengage in negotiations to conclude a peace deal.

    Asked to outline what exactly the Secretary General would want the two sides to do, beyond verbal declarations for talks, he said ''we would like to bring them back to where they were at The Hague,'', noting that President Tassos Papadopoulos had agreed to continue negotiations with a view to finalising an agreement on the basis of SG plan and he was also prepared not to reopen the plan itself as long as the Turkish Cypriot side did the same.
