The UB Post - - Politics -

Par­lia­ment met on Fri­day to re­view sev­eral bills, and rat­i­fied the le­gal as­sis­tance treaty be­tween Mon­go­lia and the Hong Kong Spe­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tive Region.

The treaty will help strengthen col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the law en­force­ment agen­cies of Mon­go­lia and Hong Kong to com­bat drug smug­gling and money laun­der­ing.

Dur­ing its Fri­day ses­sion, Par­lia­ment also rat­i­fied a pris­oner trans­fer agree­ment be­tween the govern­ments of Mon­go­lia and Kaza­khstan.

As Mon­go­lia sup­ported Kaza­khstan’s pro­posal to es­tab­lish the pris­oner trans­fer agree­ment, the two coun­tries signed the agree­ment on March 29 in As­tana, the cap­i­tal of Kaza­khstan.

As of Oc­to­ber, six Mon­go­lian cit­i­zens are serv­ing sen­tences in Kaza­khstan, and one of them re­quested to serve his sen­tence in Mon­go­lia.
