    U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan is revising his Cyprus peace plan to break a deadlock between Greeks and Turks in last-ditch efforts to unite the island for EU membership. With the clock ticking to strike a deal before Cyprus joins the European Union on May 1, Annan was meeting with advisers who were working non-stop to flesh out the plan first presented one year ago.

    Greek foreign minister Petros Molyviatis met at noon today with Mr. Annas special envoy on the Cyprus issue Alvaro de Soto, to discuss the procedure to be followed following the submission of the new, revised Annan plan, expected on Monday morning. According to sources, all the delegations have expressed disgruntlement over the fact that they will have very limited time to study the UN plan, which comprises some nine thousand pages, written on four diskettes.

    Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis arrives in the resort near Lucerne later this evening and Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan is due on Monday. Turkish Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul has appealed to U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell for help in ending a deadlock with Greece in Cyprus peace talks. Sources said that in a Saturday night telephone call Powell assured Gul that himself and U.S. President George Bush were closely following the negotiations.
