UNITED NATIONS New York (Xinhua) -- UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has met with William Ruto, the deputy president of Kenya, and the two discussed the issues of peace and development in the Horn of Africa region.

During the meeting, Ban and Ruto exchanged views on the main peace, security and humanitarian challenges facing the Horn of Africa region, including developments in Somalia, South Sudan and Burundi, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters here.

The secretary-general commended Kenya’s generosity and continued commitment to lasting peace and stability in Somalia, South Sudan and Burundi, the spokesman said.
