Ex-U.N. chief Ban back in South Korea, says will decide soon on future

SEOUL (Reuters) - Former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said upon returning to his native South Korea on Thursday that he would make a “selfless decision” soon with regard to his political career.

Ban is expected to run for president but has yet to declare his candidacy. Ban told reporters and well-wishes at Incheon airport near Seoul that he would use his experience at the United Nations to solidify South Korea’s relations with its neighbours.
