UNITED NATIONS (AP) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is heading to Turkey and Saudi Arabia next week to tackle issues ranging from the future of Somalia to combatting terrorism and cultural divisions.
U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said Friday that Ban will arrive in Istanbul late on May 30 and attend a forum the following day aimed at broadening support for the U.N. Alliance of Civilizations, which is co-chaired by Turkey and Spain and promotes cooperation among nations and peoples of different cultures and religions.
The secretary-general will co-chair an international conference on the future of Somalia on June 1, Nesirky said.
He said Ban will meet Saudi leaders including King Abdullah in Jeddah on June 2 and will co-chair an advisory board meeting of the newly established U.N. counter-terrorism center the following day.
