United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is meeting Slovenian officials at the start of his tour of the former Yugoslavia.

Ban met Slovenia's Prime Minister Janez Jansa on June 20 and is expected to hold talks with President Danilo Turk and address the country's parliament.

Ban is also scheduled to visit former Yugoslav areas of Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo and Macedonia.

While in Bosnia, Ban will visit Srebrenica, the site of Europe's worst massacre since World War II, where Bosnian Serb forces killed some 8,000 Muslims in 1995.

Slovenia is the only ex-Yugoslav republic to have joined the European Union.

Welcome to Kosovo, Banny Boy! I am an admirer of the Kosovo people for their heroism in the defence of freedom and democracy and their respect for the rule of law. They made big progress since their independence and it is time now to be accepted in the UN. I hope Banny Boy will do it. I gather he can just decree that the Republic ofKosovo is a member of the UN, thus bypassing a vote. Please do it, Banny Boy!

Banny Boy should have been guided by Hillary Clinton who would explain to him that Kosovo is not US-sponsored and NATO-protected drug-trafficking+human-trafficking+weapons-trafficking+organ-trafficking blackhole, but a fledging Muslim democracy, just like those in Libya and Afghanistan
