DIPLOMATIC CORRESPONDENT, Dhaka

Former Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) Ban Ki-Moon is going to address the 13th convocation ceremony of BRAC University in the capital today. Before attending the convocation, Ban Ki Moon will make a courtesy call on Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen at Hotel Radisson Blu in the capital to talk on various issues including the latest Rohingya situation, foreign ministry sources said.

Foreign ministry and BRAC University sources said he arrived in the capital in the evening yesterday. President Abdul Hamid, who is also the Chancellor of all universities, is scheduled to attend the convocation ceremony. Besides, the foreign minister, Education Minister Dipu Moni, among others, will be present.

The former UN Secretary General will be the convocation speaker of the Ceremony. The former secretary general will also attend a luncheon to be hosted by BRAC University in his honor at a city hotel.

The foreign minister served as the Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the UN when Ban Ki-Moon was the Secretary General of the global body. Earlier, Ban Ki-Moon visited Dhaka in July to attend the “Dhaka Meeting of the Global Commission on Adaptation’.

During that visit he went to Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar to see the condition of the Rohingya people.
