    UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday started a visit to six Middle East countries before his trip to Germany, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters here.


    "Later today, the secretary-general will travel to Istanbul, Turkey, and then to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Egypt, as the first part of his visits to the region," Dujarric said.


    In Istanbul, the secretary-general is expected to have separate meetings with the president and prime minister of Turkey, the spokesman said.


    From there, the secretary-general will travel to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where he is expected to have discussions with the King, the crown prince and deputy crown prince, as well as with senior officials, he said.


    Guterres will then fly to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to deliver remarks at the 2017 World Government Summit, Dujarric said. "While there, Guterres is expected to meet with the leaders from the UAE."


    "The secretary-general will also visit Oman and Qatar to exchange views with the respective leaderships," he said.


    In Egypt, the secretary-general will meet with the president and members of the government, the spokesman said. "During this tour to the region, the secretary-general expects to discuss a number of issues of regional and global interest."


    Guterres will then go on to Bonn and Munich in Germany, for a Group of 20 (G20) Ministerial Meeting and an annual Security Conference respectively, Dujarric said.


    Badminton powerhouse China has long dominated the sport, but its poor return of just two gold medals at the Rio Olympic Games marks a sea change as its stranglehold loosens.


    China collected a clean sweep of five gold medals at London 2012, however it was a different story in Brazil as its women shuttlers and superstar Lin Dan left empty-handed.


    That poor return played a major role in China slipping behind Great Britain to finish third in the medals table - the first time they have finished outside the top two since the Sydney Games in 2000.


    The women's singles had its first non-Chinese winner since the Atlanta Games 20 years ago after Li Xuerui failed to defend her title won in London, losing in the semifinal.


    After falling to Spanish gold medalist Carolina Marin , the 25-year-old Li said it was becoming harder for China to -continue its dominance of the sport, which has been an Olympic event since Barcelona 1992.


    Marin later hailed her gold medal as one "that broke the Asian world" and with the Spaniard only 23 years old it could be a European country that commands future women's singles titles.


    The Asian giant also missed out on Olympic women's doubles badminton gold for the first time since the Barcelona Games when Tang Yuanting and Yu Yang lost in the semifinals.


    Japanese duo Misaki Matsutomo and Ayaka Takahashi beat Denmark in the final for gold with the former declaring it had been their goal to "break China's dominance."


    Earlier last week both of China's pairs, including double London gold medallist Zhao Yunlei, lost in the last four of the mixed doubles Billige Nike Air Force 1 , which was eventually won by Indonesia.


    With three gold medals down China were still looking for their first podium-topping finish, which eventually came thanks to the men's doubles pairing of Fu Haifeng and Zhang Nan.


    Chen Long beat Malaysian Lee Chong Wei in the men's singles final to grab China's second gold but the departure of Lin is perhaps the biggest threat to Chinese dominance.


    The double Olympic gold medalist and five-time world champion, nicknamed "Super Dan," was beaten by Lee in the last four before losing his bronze medal match to Denmark's Viktor Axelsen.


    Lin towered over the sport for at least a decade but at 32 Nike Air Force 1 Udsalg , Rio was all but -certainly his last Games and it was not the end to a glorious career that he would have wanted.


    Chen is only 27 but was taken to three games by future star Axelsen, who at 22 could be favorite for a gold medal at Tokyo in four years' time.


    With Zhao, who turns 30 shortly, also expected to announce her retirement soon Nike Air Force 1 Danmark , and Fu aged 32, China needs a new generation of younger players if it's to keep its grip tightly on Olympic gold medals.
