Chapter Summary

In view of the June 1995 decision to open EU accession negotiations after the conclusion of the Intergovernmental Conference, the Turkish side was reluctant to start a new round of United Nations (UN) talks. In 1997, a new circle of Cyprus mediators emerged. Kofi Annan succeeded Boutros-Ghali, who had largely lost his interest in Cyprus, as UN Secretary-General. The Annan plan I of 11 November consisted of a main text of four articles plus five appendices ("Appendix A-E"). Appendix A set out a "Foundation agreement" plus ten annexes ("Annex I-X"). From a legal perspective, it must be scrutinised what kind of measures were aimed at when the 2002 Seville Council, confirmed by all subsequent European Councils, spoke about "accommodation" of the Annan plan by the EU.
