United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan is in India on a three-day visit.
External Affairs Minister K. Natwar Singh welcomed Annan at the airport on Monday; Annan came to New Delhi from Jakarta where he attended the Africa-Asia Summit.
His visit is considered significant as it comes ahead of the Millennium Review Summit in New York in September that will discuss proposed reforms in the UN.
