    Verheugen, who wrapped up a three-day visit to the island and left for Brussels, also said that the EU prefers a united Cyprus to enter the European Union in May 2004 and there is a window of opportunity for this to happen, but whatever happens, the island will join the EU.

    On his impressions from his visit, Verheugen said, there is a clear commitment by the Cyprus government to re-launch the talks and reach a settlement within the parameters of the Annan Plan. He said the Cyprus government shares the objective of the accession of a united Cyprus and we share the opinion that the window of opportunity is still open and should be used before the 1st May 2004.
