    Cyprus President aware of de Soto's agenda in Ankara

    Nicosia, Mar 5 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said he was aware of the issues the UN Secretary-Generals special Adviser on Cyprus Alvaro de Soto plans to discuss during his trip to Ankara.

    Asked on his departure from the Presidential Palace for his tenth meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash whether de Soto had told him the reason the UN envoy travels to Turkey, President Papadopoulos said he had been briefed.

    Soon after today's talks, Alvaro de Soto will fly to Ankara for consultations with Turkish government officials.

    Regarding a local press report on territorial adjustments, the Cypriot President said the issue has not yet been discussed at the talks.

    Papadopoulos and Denktash have been engaged in UN-led direct talks since February 19, with a view to reach a negotiated settlement before May 1 this year when Cyprus joins the European Union.

    Cypriot President says Turkish Cypriot side made odd suggestions

    Nicosia, Mar 5 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash made some odd suggestions during their meeting today in the context of the UN-led negotiations for a comprehensive settlement for Cyprus before the island enters the EU on 1st of May.

    He told reporters after the end of todays second week of negotiations that the National Council (top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus problem) would convene tomorrow to be briefed by him on the developments.

    President Papadopoulos said today they discussed the proposal submitted by the Greek Cypriot side that territories which will be returned should come under UN administration, a suggestion which the Turkish side has rejected from the start, without even discussing the proposal.

    He said the Turkish side explained its positions on the resettlement of those who will be relocated, mainly the Turkish Cypriots, adding we heard some odd suggestions, for instance, no one should move until another place is found for their resettlement as well as satisfactory employment and that those displaced since 1963 will remain in the areas where they are currently residing.
