SYRIA: "I want to express that we do support the Annan Plan. However the regime continues the bloodshed and killing. That they have 'withdrawn tanks' is partially true. They need to be brought back to the barracks. As long as this is not done, then it means that Annan's six-point plan has not been fulfilled."
EUROPEAN UNION: "After Denmark's term comes to an end, the Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus will be taking on the EU presidency. During this period of time, we will be taking a six-month break. We do not recognize a state called Southern Cyprus. Therefore, it is not possible for us to sit at the same table with a state we do not recognize."
MEETING WITH BARZANI: "The issue of Iraq is the most important one on the table. Afterwards we will move on to discussing the region in which Syria will be the most significant issue. During the course of the meeting however there could be a number of other discussions held. It is inevitable that the issue of terrorism in Turkey and the PKK will come up because there are aspects that involve Northern Iraq. I hope that the impact of these discussions will surface as soon as possible."
