Nicosia, Oct 9 (CNA) -- The proposals of the Greek Cypriot side for improvements in the UN Secretary General's plan for a Cyprus settlement do not aim at changing the framework, the philosophy and the parameters of the plan nor at depriving the rights and privileges the plan offers to the Turkish Cypriots, Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos stated here today.

Opening the International Conference on ''The Changing Nature of the Ombudsman Institution in Europe'' organised by the office of the Cyprus Commissioner for Administration (ombudsman), President Papadopoulos said ''we hope and anticipate, through negotiations, which we are seeking and pursuing, without terms and preconditions to achieve improvements that will make the Cyprus settlement more functional and thus more viable. A solution with endurance, within the framework of the great European family.''
