Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Foreign Minister D.Tsogtbaatar on December 11, met with Beate Trankmann, United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator and UN Development Programme (UNDP) Resident Representative in Mongolia.

At the meeting, the sides exchanged information and views on Mongolia-UN cooperation, especially some changes brought by the repositioning of the UN Development System and further plan of action.

Under the UN General Assembly (UNGA)’s resolution on the repositioning of the UN Development System, functions of the UN resident coordinator are being separated from those of the UNDP resident representative. Thus, Ms. Beate Trankmann will be working as UN Resident Coordinator ad interim until the appointment of a new resident coordinator.

The Foreign Minister noted the Government of Mongolia will endeavor to be understanding towards and support the changes effected by the above mentioned reform.
