Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Within the 70th UN General Assembly running in New York City, USA, the leader of Mongolia Ts.Elbegdorj has expressed a satisfaction with an adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and emphasized that countries must make efforts for realizing this agenda.

He said it during a discussion themed “Joint efforts for ensuring sustainable development goals” organized by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with a participation of state leaders of some 170 countries in New York on Sunday.

Mr Elbegdorj highlighted that implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is directly dependent on results of the upcoming 2015 UN Climate Change Conference which will run  in December in Paris of France.

“Those nations emitting much greenhouse gas should undertake a commitment. Meanwhile, the world’s community must focus attention to creating a financial resource for developing nations to fulfill their goals. For instance, foreign investments and financial support are vital for Mongolia that has plenty of renewable energy resources and a possibility of reducing greenhouse gas,” the President stressed, urging countries to boost cooperation in the matter.

The discussion brought together Mr Mogens Lykketoft, the President of the United Nations General Assembly; Mr Achim Steiner, the Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); and Ms S.Oyun, the President of the United Nations Environment Assembly.
