Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of MONTSAME News Agency, President of Yonhap News Agency Sung-boo Cho extended greetings.

Hello! My name is Sung-boo Cho. I am President and CEO of Yonhap News Agency, South Korea’s key newswire. First of all, I would like to express my sincerest congratulation on the centennial anniversary of the foundation of the MONTSAME News Agency. 


As Mongolia’s representative news agency, MONTSAME has been growing as the most reputable and credible media outlet in Mongolia since its birth in 1921. 

MONTSAME has certainly performed its important roles both as a window to deliver its domestic news and information to readers overseas as well as people in Mongolia. 


In particular, MONTSAME has remained active in a variety of affairs related to the Organization of Asia-Pacific News Agencies (OANA), for which I work as President.


Mrs. Ganchimeg Badamdorj, Director General of MONTSAME, has visited S. Korea to attend the OANA General Assembly in Seoul in November 2019. I do hope for MONTSAME’s active engagement and cooperation under the framework of the OANA in the future.   


As key news agencies representing South Korea and Mongolia respectively, Yonhap and MONTSAME have maintained close exchanges and cooperation for a long period of time. I do hope both agencies will expand the existing bilateral cooperative relations into various sectors, further developing the mutual friendship.    


Once again, I would like to congratulate the centennial anniversary of the foundation of the MONTSAME and hope MONTSAME will make tremendous success forever in the future. 


Thank You.
