UNITED NATIONS -- Early Friday morning United Nations headquarters issued the following press advisory:

"Secretary General Ban Ki-moon concluded this morning a surprise visit to Afghanistan.

During a four-hour stay in Kabul, the Secretary General met with President Hamid Karzai, with the leader of the Wolesi Jirga, Yunus Qanuni, with the military commander of the International Security Assistance Force, General Dan McNeal and with members of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.

The Secretary General has left Kabul and will be heading to Europe.

He is expected in Geneva Monday for the opening of the high-level meeting of the Economic and Social Council.

Ban will meet Karzai again July 3rd when he travels to Rome to attend the Conference on the Rule of Law in Afghanistan, which will be co-chaired by the United Nations and the Afghan and Italian Governments. The Secretary General's Special Representative for Afghanistan, Tom Koenigs will also attend the Rome conference."
