UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday will analyze with major Indian leaders some issues related to the international situation, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and the process of reform of that international body. Early on Friday, the UN chief laid a wreath at the monument to Mahatma Gandhi in this capital.

Ban Ki-moon's agenda on Saturday includes a meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and a ceremony in which he will be conferred the degree of Doctor in Letters (Honoris Causa) at the Jamia Millia Islamia (National Islamic University).

Other activities include meetings with Foreign Minister S. M. Krishna; the speaker of the Lok Sabha (Lower House of Parliament), Meira Kumar; and the president of the ruling United Progressive Alliance, Sonia Gandhi.

The UN secretary general began a three-day official visit to India on Thursday, the second of this kind since he took office in 2007, in the company of a large delegation.

From New Delhi, Ban Ki-moon will travel on Saturday to the center-west city on Mumbai, where he will meet with Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, and will inspect many projects linked to the MDG.

"Ban Ki-moon's visit takes place in a context of India's strong commitment to multilateralism and extensive contribution to the United Nations, including specialized programs and agencies," the local Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated in a press release.
