UN chief heads to Washington for talks

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is heading to Washington for talks on major global issues with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and key lawmakers.

U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said Ban will meet members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday morning.

He is scheduled to meet Clinton on Thursday afternoon before returning to New York.

Ban last traveled to Washington in late February when he held talks with President Barack Obama on the situation in Libya.
