North Korea cancels Ban Ki-moon's visit to Kaesong economic zone
May 20 , 2015
The North Korean government has cancelled United Nations secretary general Ban Ki-moon’s visit to the country just a day before his expected arrival.
Ban Ki-moon was expected to visit the Kaesong economic zone, an industrial complex run jointly by the two Koreas.
The secretary general, who is a former foreign minister of South Korea, said that the cancellation was “deeply regrettable”. North Korea has given no official reason for the abrupt decision, reports said.
