    UN SG and Turkish Premier discuss Cyprus

    United Nations, Jun 10 (CNA) -- UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said he intents to bring back before the Security Council his report issued after the Cyprus referenda in April last year aiming at its endorsement.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with Turkish Premier Tayiip Erdogan, the UN SG added that next steps on the Cyprus issue would be decided after the Under-Secretary-General for the Department of Political Affairs Sir Kieran Prendergast briefs him on his mission to Cyprus, Greece and Turkey where he was sent to make an assessment on the current situation.

    Speaking after the working lunch Erdogan expressed disappointment over the fact that an endorsement of the report is still pending, adding that the Turkish side's expectation in Cyprus ''is to have a comprehensive, long-lasting and just peace and settlement''.

    According to CNA sources the Turkish Premier did not set the endorsement of the report as a condition to support a new UN initiative on Cyprus.
