UN Secretary General-elect off to Beijing

October 27, 2006

BBC reports that the UN Secretary General-elect (and South Korea’s current foreign minister), Ban Ki-moon, is on his way to Beijing for talks with Chinese officials.

The topic of nuclear proliferation will certainly be talked about as China is committed to resuming the 6-party nuclear negotiations with North Korea. Prior to his departure for Beijing, the diplomat said: “I intend to seek an active role for the peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue.”

And now, we wait. Some positive announcements are possible this weekend.
