PRESIDENT Benigno Aquino III will meet with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon who will visit the Philippines later this week, Malacañang said Tuesday.

In a media briefing, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said the meeting will take place before the UN official flies to Tacloban City.

"Ang alam ko, magkakaroon sila ng meeting, after which the UN Secretary General will proceed to Tacloban," Coloma said.

Tacloban City is one of the hardest-ravaged areas by super typhoon Yolanda when it devastated Visayas and Southern Luzon last November 8.

Yolanda left more than 6,000 people dead.

Coloma said the UN Secretary General is expected to assess the damage caused by the calamity. (SDR/Sunnex)
