STATEMENT OF THE SPOKESPERSON OF THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS OF MONGOLIA

(Translation from Mongolian)

President of the United States of America Donald Trump, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Kim Jong Un and President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in met at the Demilitarized Zone on June 30, and President of the United States stepped into the DPRK’s soil for the first time. This was an important step for enhancing peace and security in the Korean Peninsula and furthering dialogue to the next level.

The Government of Mongolia and its people congratulate on this and believe that the Third summit between the USA and the DPRK as well as the First trilateral meeting between the USA, DPRK and ROK will become an important impetus towards confidence-building among relevant parties, denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and advancing prosperity and intensifying multilateral cooperation in the Northeast Asia.
