The final changes made by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to his plan for a settlement of the Cyprus issue do not satisfy the Greek Cypriot side, according to a statement made here early Wednesday evening by Cypriot government spokesman Kypros Chrysostomides.
The spokesman announced that Annan had called Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos earlier in the day and briefed him on the final changes he aims to introduce to his plan.
''The president expressed the opinion that they are not satisfactory and discussed with Mr. Annan the positions which the Greek Cypriot side had submitted and were not adopted. He explained the reasons why his positions should have been taken into consideration,'' Chrysostomides said.
