Ban Ki-moon to visit Lesvos on June 18

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will visit Lesvos on June 18 to meet with migrants, asylum seekers and the volunteers who support them.

“I will visit Lesvos to assess the situation and express my solidarity,” Ban told journalists speaking at the UN headquarters in New York. “Hundreds of Syrians and other refugees and migrants continue to die in the Mediterranean trying to escape war and persecution,” he added.
He will also meet Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Athens on June 17, before flying to the island.
