The Em­bassy of South Korea in Ulaan­baatar in co­op­er­a­tion with Mon­go­lian non-gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions on na­tional se­cu­rity is­sues and for­eign pol­icy, in­clud­ing Mon­go­lia’s Diplo­matic Academy, Mon­go­lian Peace Foun­da­tion, Tsenkher Suld, and the Mon­go­lian Fo­rum to Pro­mote Korean Re­uni­fi­ca­tion, hosted the fo­rum on Novem­ber 30 in Ulaan­baatar.

In his re­marks, D. Davaa­suren high­lighted that North and South Korea re­stored di­rect talks this year in or­der to pro­mote peace and se­cu­rity on the Korean Penin­sula and a his­toric sum­mit be­tween North Korea and the United States suc­cess­fully took place in June.

He em­pha­sized that Mon­go­lia highly val­ues the no­table progress in the pro­mo­tion of the penin­sula se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity, and this pos­i­tive progress re­sulted from cor­rect pol­icy and de­ci­sive steps of the two coun­tries’ lead­ers.

D. Davaa­suren noted that Mon­go­lia en­cour­ages open di­a­logue and dis­cus­sion to pro­mote peace and se­cu­rity in the re­gion and the coun­try has reg­u­larly hosted in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences un­der the Ulaan­baatar Di­a­logue Ini­tia­tive on North­east Asian Se­cu­rity to strengthen re­gional se­cu­rity, co­op­er­a­tion and mu­tual trust.

He added that Mon­go­lia will con­tinue its ef­forts to­ward re­gional peace, se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity, and noted that he hopes out­comes from this meet­ing and other meet­ings on this mat­ter will be ben­e­fi­cial and fruit­ful to progress in re­gional se­cu­rity.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the sides dis­cussed the on­go­ing peace process on the Korean Penin­sula and its fur­ther as­pects, pos­si­bil­i­ties for el­e­vat­ing the com­pre­hen­sive part­ner­ship be­ing de­vel­oped by Mon­go­lia and South Korea to strate­gic part­ner­ship, in­ten­si­fy­ing the Mon­go­lia-South Korea Eco­nomic Part­ner­ship Agree­ment, and other is­sues.
