The UN chief, who comes here after a short visit to Pakistan, will attend the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit (DSDS), which focuses on addressing the issue of global climate change.

He will meet Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee and discuss with him a host of regional issues, including the resurgence of violence in Afghanistan and the situation in Myanmar.

Besides the UN reforms and the global financial issues, the Nov.26 Mumbai terror attacks will figure prominently in the discussions.

When Mukherjee meets Ban, he is expected to share with the UN chief the evidence linking Pakistani nationals to the Mumbai attacks, the report said.

New Delhi is also said to be compiling a detailed list of individuals and entities based in Pakistan who have been involved in different attacks on India since the 2006 bombings on commuter trains in Mumbai.

The Indian government is expected to press the UN to include more entities and individuals based in Pakistan to be included in the terror list of the UN, the report said.
