S. Korea to grant Ban merit for contribution to nation

SEOUL, Jan. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's Cabinet is set to approve a plan to confer one of the highest orders of merit on former U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his contribution to enhancing national stature, officials said Tuesday.

Ban, who is set to return to his home country Thursday after serving as the U.N. helmsman for a decade, is to receive the Order of Mugunghwa, a national merit named after the Rose of Sharon, Korea's national flower.

The decision is set to be approved during a Cabinet meeting headed by Acting President and Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn.

A total of 12 figures will receive merits, including Ban.
