AFP reports that Ban is visiting Slovakia, another Security Council member:
South Korean Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Ban Ki-moon said on April 12 he hoped to see stronger economic ties and further investments in Slovakia, where Hyundai subsidiary, Kia, and Samsung are already implanted.
"I am very happy to see increased trade relations as well as investments by many big companies like Hyundai/Kia and Samsung and many others," he said during a joint news conference with Slovak Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan. "While I expect that the number of investments and the opportunities for bigger cooperation will grow, it would also be necessary for the Slovak government to create favorable conditions for more investment," he added.
Fortunately, it was leavened with a request for more favorable conditions. He did no such thing in Uzbekistan where he offered a $30m loan.
