Fred Eckhard, Spokesman for the Secretary-General said in New York Monday that de Soto, who is currently in NY paid a "social and private" to Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, recovering from open heart surgery.
De Soto was to meet Denktash’s adviser, Ergun Olgun on Monday and was to confer with State Department Special Coordinator for Cyprus, Thomas Weston and British Envoy for Cyprus, Lord David Hannay.
