The UB Post - - Politics -

Un­der the aus­pices of Pres­i­dent Kh.Bat­tulga, the Ad­min­is­tra­tive Of­fice of the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil in co­op­er­a­tion with the Na­tional Po­lice Agency or­ga­nized a sym­po­sium ti­tled “Mor­tal­ity rate, pre­ven­tive mea­sures, and im­prov­ing in­ter-agency co­or­di­na­tion” at the State Palace on De­cem­ber 18.

Min­is­ter of Jus­tice and In­ter­nal Af­fairs Ts.Nyam­dorj, Sec­re­tary of Cab­i­net G.Zan­dan­shatar, Sec­re­tary of the Na­tional Se­cu­rity Coun­cil A.Gan­sukh, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of gov­ern­ment agen­cies at­tended the sym­po­sium and de­liv­ered speeches on ways to re­duce mor­tal­ity rate, on tak­ing ef­fec­tive ac­tion and to en­hance mu­tual co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the gov­ern­ment agen­cies.

In the sym­po­sium’s open­ing re­marks, Pres­i­dent Kh.Bat­tulga pointed out that na­tional se­cu­rity means en­sur­ing fa­vor­able ex­ter­nal and in­ter­nal con­di­tions for se­cur­ing and pro­tect­ing the core na­tional in­ter­ests, and 11 gov­ern­ment bod­ies are re­spon­si­ble for en­sur­ing na­tional se­cu­rity na­tion­wide.

The pres­i­dent said, “I have been com­mit­ted to­wards the reg­u­la­tion of co­or­di­na­tion among gov­ern­ment agen­cies des­ig­nated to en­sur­ing na­tional se­cu­rity and met with the au­thor­i­ties of these agen­cies three times in per­son to give in­struc­tions. We are see­ing def­i­nite re­sults af­ter the agen­cies worked on an in­te­grated plan for joint im­ple­men­ta­tion. This sym­po­sium is one of the ac­tions set out in the in­te­grated plan. I be­lieve that to­day’s sym­po­sium is a timely event.”

Kh.Bat­tulga re­ported that peo­ple be­tween 40 and 45 years of age, on av­er­age, are los­ing their lives ev­ery day and 15,000 to 17,000 in­di­vid­u­als die ev­ery year due to road, oc­cu­pa­tional and other ac­ci­dents, al­co­hol and chem­i­cal poi­son­ing, sui­cide, homi­cide, vi­o­lence, dis­eases, and other ex­ter­nal causes.

The pres­i­dent high­lighted that the re­port il­lus­trates a close es­ti­mate to the num­ber of civil war ca­su­al­ties in Syria in the first ten months of 2018, and Mon­go­lia’s liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment has grown sim­i­lar to that of coun­tries that are in war.

He said, “To­day’s heart­break­ing cir­cum­stances fac­ing the coun­try di­rectly link to the gov­ern­ment’s fail­ure to ful­fill its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to pro­vide its cit­i­zens with a healthy and safe liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment. There­fore, I hope that you will have a pro­duc­tive dis­cus­sion on how to re­duce the num­ber of such un­timely deaths, come up with tan­gi­ble so­lu­tions, and im­ple­ment them ef­fec­tively. There should be no more valu­able as­set than a Mon­go­lian ci­ti­zen in this coun­try.”

“I am in­struct­ing you to or­ga­nize this sym­po­sium ev­ery year. When you meet again next year, the above­men­tioned un­de­sir­able num­bers should be re­duced. I ex­pect only good re­sults from you, no ex­cuses,” the pres­i­dent as­serted.
