United Nations, Sep 14 (CNA) -- The Cyprus question was among the issues discussed at a meeting held here Tuesday between Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.

According to well informed sources Karamanlis stressed that Greece supports the UN Secretary General's good offices, noting that any new initiative for a settlement of the Cyprus issue, should be carefully prepared, so that a new breakdown is prevented.

A UN Secretary General's spokesman said that Annan reassured Greek Premier that his good offices are at the disposal of both sides in Cyprus.

Greek Foreign Minister Petros Molyviatis and other Greek officials were also present at the meeting.

Apart from the Cyprus problem, Annan and Karamanlis discussed reforms at the United Nations, the issue of the name of Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, as well as other issues related to the agenda of the 60th UN General Assembly.

Greece is a non permanent member of the UN Security Council for 2005 and 2006.
