UN Chief to visit China
CHINA: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will make a four-day visit to
China from Thursday, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
Ban will meet with Premier Wen Jiabao and Foreign Minister Yang
Jiechi on Friday, the ministry said.
The Ministry did not give further details of the UN chief's July
23-26 trip but North Korea's nuclear weapons programme is expected to be
on his agenda. Ban led international calls for restraint after ethnic
unrest in China's northwest Xinjiang region two weeks ago which left at
least 192 dead.
