STORYLINE:

South Korea's favorite son, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, arrived in his home country today to a hero's welcome: a cannon salute at Seoul Air Base and cheering crowds at Seoul National University, where he was granted an honorary doctorate.

Mr. Ban reminded an overflow crowd of students that South Korea, having worked hard and benefited greatly from change, now had a duty to help other's follow the same path to prosperity, democracy and respect for human rights.

On the plane from Beijing, Mr. Ban said that the "Republic of Korea can contribute to the very serious challenges to which the whole international community has to cooperate."

In Seoul, he also met with Korean peacekeepers preparing to leave for UN duty in Lebanon, and with the first Korean astronaut, Ms. Yi So-yeon, who in April held aloft a UN flag during her 12-day stay on the International Space Station.
