UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to pay a visit to Turkey today as part of his regional tour to have talks on the Syrian crisis.

In a statement released on Thursday, the Foreign Ministry said that the UN chief will visit a camp in İslahiye, a town in the southern province of Gaziantep, where Syrian refugees who have fled the violence in their country are being sheltered.

“Afterwards, Ban Ki-moon will proceed to Ankara to meet with President Abdullah Gül, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu,” the statement said, adding that the latest regional developments are likely to be discussed at the meetings.

The UN chief will travel to Turkey after wrapping up talks in Jordan.
