 The UN Annan Proposal For the settlement of the Cyprus question
The drafters of the UN Annan Plan claim their plan to be based in principle on the Swiss constitutional model.
It should be noted and it is therefore argued that the UN Annan plan either derogates from key features of the Swiss constitutional model, or, omits to adopt and incorporate key neuralgic articles, thus neutralizing the central theme and the overall philosophy and functionality of the Swiss constitutional model.
Determines that possible solution of the Cyprus problem based on the UN Annan plan will be economically viable it that the Cyprus economy will be able to withstand the economic cost of the solution.

  Kibris Op-Ed: The Annan Plan: Securing Cyprus' Future for All
One of the difficulties in evaluating a settlement based on the Annan plan is the considerable amount of misinformation – even disinformation – circulating about the plan itself.
On the contrary, the Plan explicitly enshrines the principle of bi-zonality, asserts the political equality of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, and declares the two constituent states of the United Cyprus Republic are of equal status.
In short, under the Annan plan, the Turkish Cypriot State would be the self-administered and political equal of the Greek Cypriot one, controlling its own political processes and territory.

 SPECTRUM
This relative success of Kofi Annan’s plan can be explained by the fact that there had already been a decision on Cyprus’s membership in EU since May 1, 2004, and that the pressure on both Cypriot and Turkish sides was extremely intensive.
Without discussing the plan in detail, we would like to remind that the Greek population rejected Kofi Annan’s plan on the April 24 referendum by 76% of votes, meanwhile the Turkish community said “yes” to the plan (67% of votes).
So apparently, the support of Annan’s plan by Erdogan’s government was aimed at deceiving the international community, first of all, the Europeans, raising Turkey’s chances for the EU membership in the guise of the “peace-loving” state.

As Annan and Denktas have said, it is the citizens of Greek Cyprus and the KKTC who will make the final decision before the May 1 deadline as to whether or not the island joins the EU as a unified state.
But the Annan plan envisages the use of their rights "sovereignly," which is legally less than the concept of sovereignty.
As Kofi Annan said, never before have the two parties come so close to an agreement, and he congratulated both the leaders, Denktas and Papadopoulos, for taking the risky diplomatic initiative of putting their careers on the line.

 US Endorses Annan's Plan  on Cyprus - 2004-04-01
Secretary-General Annan announced his intention to put the plan to a simultaneous referendum in the two parts of Cyprus after leaders of the island's rival communities failed to hammer out a deal between themselves on terms of a settlement.
He said the plan would allow a substantial number of Greek-Cypriots to return to homes left behind in 1974, when the northern section of the island was seized by Turkish troops who invaded after a Greek-inspired coup in Nicosia aimed at uniting the island with Greece.
Annan urged the two sides not to repeat the mistakes of the past and to "seize this chance for peace" in a united republic of Cyprus.

Annan and Baker also clearly state in their report that they have lost patience with the settlement plan that was to assure the referendum.
The Baker and Annan plan is to be presented to the UN Security Council tomorrow, 26 June (not Saturday, as earlier reported on afrol News).

Annan is presenting his new improved save-the-world reform plan, conveniently timed to serve as a distraction from the oil-for-fraud, sex-for-food, theft, waste, abuse and incompetence stories that for the past two years have bubbling up around the same U.N. he already reformed for us back in 1997.
Annan that every dollar taxed away from the citizens of the rich nations of the world is a dollar less that's available for these same private citizens to buy goods for which there is genuine market-driven demand--that being the real engine of development.
Annan's chiding the Security Council and General Assembly that when they assign tasks to the Secretariat, they must take care "that they also provide resources adequate for the task." Yes, but as Oil for Food illustrated, even $1.4 billion in administrative funding was not enough to provide honesty and competence.

 washingtonpost.com: Annan Outlines Plan For U.N. Role in Iraq
Annan is urging the United States and other key Security Council members to support a plan that would turn over power to a provisional Iraqi government, backed by a U.S.-led multinational force, within three to five months, while moving more deliberately to draft a new constitution and hold elections, senior U.N. officials said.
The initiative reflects mounting concern by Annan that the U.S. plan to keep political control until the Iraqis have cleared several political hurdles, including elections by the end of 2004, will fuel greater resentment toward the United States and its military allies.
Annan said establishing a new transitional government could serve as a basis for a resumption of U.N. participation in the political process.

Annan’s disappointment was reflected in his Report on his Mission of Good Offices in Cyprus, dated 3 June 2004, where he stated “the rejection of such a plan by the Greek Cypriot electorate is a major setback.
Throughout the period of negotiation of the Annan Plan and all its predecessors, and for a period of more than forty years, the Turkish Cypriots have been subjected to physical and economic deprivation and debilitating uncertainty.
