Ambassador of Mongolia to the Kingdom of Belgium Kh.Davaadorj addressed the event where he highlighted that inheriting the mother language, culture and traditions to the younger generations is an essential policy of the Mongolian state.

In view of this, the government  has developed targeted “World Mongolians Program” and the Promoting Mongolia Overseas Program, he said.
