2006-02-22 14:04:28

Nicosia, Feb 22 (CNA) - Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos will visit Athens on 8 March, Government Spokesman George Lillikas announced here Wednesday.

Asked whether the reason of the working visit was due to the fact that on 28 February the President will meet UN Secretary General Kofi Annan in Paris, Lillikas said ''this was always the case, every time there were significant meetings on important issues.''

Invited to say if after his Athens visit the President will convene the National Council, the Spokesman said the President will decide according to the contents and result of his meeting.

He added that it was up to President Papadopoulos to judge whether there was any new development in order to convene the National Council.

Lillikas said the Democratic Rally will be invited to participate in the next National Council meeting and it was up to DISY to decide whether it would attend or not.
