    Nicosia, Nov 18 (CNA) UN Secretary-Generals Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto said the timeframe in Kofi Annans plan for a settlement is an integral part of the Secretary General's proposal and pointed out that there needs to be a firm commitment by the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot sides to try to reach a settlement before December 12, when the European Union summit takes place.

    Speaking after receiving a letter from President Glafcos Clerides addressed to Kofi Annan in which the President expresses his readiness to begin negotiations without delay, de Soto said he hoped the UN will soon receive from the Turkish Cypriot side an expression of their willingness to start negotiations.
