Seoul--(뉴스와이어) 2008년 06월 12일 -- The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will visit Korea from July 3 to 7 at the invitation of the Korean government.

During his visit, Secretary-General Ban will pay a courtesy call on President Lee Myung-bak, attend a dinner hosted by the President, meet with Prime Minister Han Seung-soo and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Yu Myung-hwan. He will also attend the Model United Nations General Assembly held at the Chongju University as well as various gatherings including the reception hosted by the UN Association of the ROK and luncheon hosted by the UN Global Compact Korea. At Seoul National University, he is to be conferred on the Honorary Doctorate in international affairs.

During the meeting with the high-level officials of Korea, Secretary-General Ban will discuss ways to strengthen cooperation between Korea and the UN, situations on the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia, major projects promoted by the Secretary General, and other international issues including regional disputes.

This is the first visit to Korea by Secretary-General Ban since his inauguration in 2007. It is expected that his visit will serve as an opportunity to consolidate the cooperative ties between Korea and the UN, as the Korean government puts greater emphasis on increasing its contribution to the international community

than ever. Taking this opportunity, the Korean government is to reconfirm its support to Secretary-General Ban's role and leadership on major global issues, such as the reform of the UN to enhance its accountability and effectiveness for the world's people in the 21st century, climate change, food crisis, situation in Darfur, Sudan and other large-scale humanitarian disasters.
