Ban Ki-moon visit
UNITED Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon will travel to the Khmer Rouge tribunal and the Cambodian-Russian Friendship Hospital in addition to meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen and King Norodom Sihamoni during his visit to the Kingdom this week, officials said yesterday.

At the tribunal on Wednesday, Ban will meet with and take questions from court staff, UN court spokesman Lars Olsen said. Ban was also expected to discuss the court during his meeting with Hun Sen, Olsen added.

Ban will also visit the new methadone clinic at the Cambodian-Russian Friendship Hospital, said Graham Shaw, a technical adviser on drug use with the World Health Organisation. Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said Ban’s wife, Yoo Soon-taek, would join First Lady Bun Rany at the Royal University of Fine Arts and the Kantha Bopha hospital in Daun Penh district.
