    President Papadopoulos meets UN USG Kieran Prendergast

    Nicosia, May 31 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos discussed here today a fresh effort for the resumption of UN-sponsored talks for a Cyprus settlement with UN Under Secretary General for Political Affairs Sir Kieran Prendergast.

    The UN official described the two-hour long meeting at the Presidential Palace as a ''productive discussion'' and announced that he will meet again the Cypriot President tomorrow and after tomorrow. Prendergast will have similar discussions with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    The UN USG said ''we have had productive discussions and we have agreed that the course of the discussions will remain confidential.''

    He added that he would not make any statement until the end of his mission ''because I have come primarily to listen to the parties.''

    Asked whether he will meet again President Papadopoulos, the UN official said ''I think I might see him twice before I leave the island. Once tomorrow and once on Thursday''.

    In a short statement after the meeting, the Cypriot President confirmed that he would meet again Prendergast tomorrow and after tomorrow.

    He said it was up to the UN official how to handle discussions, creating a climate conducive to the launch of a new effort for a Cyprus settlement.

    President Papadopoulos said the Greek Cypriot side has submitted to the UN ''concrete and detailed suggestions'' concerning its positions for a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Prendergast was accompanied by the UN Secretary General's Special Representative in Cyprus Zbigniew Wlosowicz.

    Present were also Director of President Papadopoulo's Diplomatic Office Tasos Tzionis and Cyprus' Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis.
