Ambassador to Sweden resigns
Minister of Foreign Affairs D.Tsogtbaatar said on November 28 that Ambassador of Mongolia to Sweden O.Enkhtsetseg handed over her resignation letter to him on November 9.
The minister noted that the ambassador wants to conclude her mission because of a matter regarding her family, but did not specify the details.
People are curious about why experienced diplomatic O.Enkhtsetseg submitted her resignation letter.
There is a rumor that O.Enkhtsetseg brought some of her family members and her maid to Sweden on tourist visas, which violated the Swedish law and diplomatic protocol. Countries do not allow residence permits to those who entered the country on a tourist visa.
Parliament accepted the nomination of O.Enkhtsetseg as ambassador to Sweden in May and after she received her credentials from President Kh.Battulga at the beginning of September, the diplomat left for Sweden.
O.Enkhtsetseg graduated from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations in 1984, and has been serving in the field of foreign affairs for 31 years.
She worked at the Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a department head for many years, and as permanent representative of Mongolia to the United Nations as second and first secretaries and ambassador.
