Chapter Summary

After the failure to agree on Annan III at the summit in The Hague and the signature of the Accession Treaty in April 2003, in a surprising move, the TRNC government decided on 21 April 2003 to open three crossing points on the green line. On the Greek Cypriot side Papadopoulos continued to signal to relevant partners from the EU and UN his preparedness to negotiate improvements to the Annan plan staying within the latter's philosophy and concept. From 19 February to 22 March 2004, the negotiations were conducted in Cyprus. Fulfilling the New York agreement, the Greek Cypriots submitted a draft constitution before 12 March. The Turkish Cypriots did not. The EU closely followed the developments from Annan III to V, by providing for experts to the UN team throughout the process and by personal involvement of the Enlargement Commissioner Verheugen at the final stage of the Bürgenstock negotiations.
