United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon made a surprise visit on Friday to Afghanistan, where he met with President Hamid Karzai and the commander of NATO troops.

Ban's first visit to the country was aimed at "ensuring solid coordination between the UN and Afghan government in their joint
efforts here," said Adrian Edwards, the UN spokesman in Afghanistan.

Ban also met with the head of NATO's International Security Assistance Force, Gen Dan McNeill, and other officials, Edwards said.
