UNITED NATIONS, Nov 18 : UN chief Ban Ki-moon has no plans to visit North Korea in the coming days, the United Nations said on Tuesday, dispelling reports that he would meet with the nation's diplomatically reclusive leader Kim Jong-Un.
Ban "will be in New York most of next week and then travel to Malta," the UN said in a statement.
"The Secretary-General will not be travelling to the DPRK next week," the United Nations said, using another name for North Korea.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Monday that Ban would visit Pyongyang in his official capacity later this week, though no precise dates were given. China's official Xinhua news agency said that the North's KCNA news agency had told it Ban would visit from Monday.     ?AFP
