Mongolia’s role in solving the Northeast Asian security recognizedPolitics
Beijing /MONTSAME/ The annual International conference of NGOs on Northeast Asian Security initiated by the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) was held in Beijing on December 4. The fourth conference was co-organized by the Chinese Chahar society.
Scholars and researchers of Mongolia, Russia, ROK, DPRK, People’s Republic of China, the US and Japan took part in the conference. Officials including CEO of the GPPAC member ‘Tsenkher Suld’ NGO, former ambassador J.Enkhsaikhan, members of the NGO Major General D.Myagmar and former director of the School of International Relations at NUM Dr. N.Altantsetseg represented Mongolia at the conference.
“The pro-nuclear-weapon-free-status “Tsenkher Suld” NGO operates as coordinator at the GPPAC. Northeast Asian countries attach great importance to our country’s nuclear-weapon-free status and adamant state policy. Especially, they take Mongolia as an example in connection with the situation on the Korean Peninsula. China plays an important role in Korean Peninsula situation and intensifying participation of the North Korea. Therefore the conference was held in Beijing, widely involving Chinese researchers,” said Dr. D.Myagmar.
It’s remarkable that the participants agreed that the security of the Northeast Asia can not be ensured without participation of Mongolia. Mongolia was officially added to the six Northeast Asian countries as ‘6+1’ in the outcome document of the conference.
“As a result of our efforts, the role of Mongolia was recognized at the level of NGOs for peace. The stakeholders will further work to gain recognition of their governments. The participants also agreed that Ulaanbaatar is a convenient place to organize the meeting of leaders of DPRK and the USA,” he added.
Next conference will be held in Ulaanbaatar.
