Ulaanbaatar, May 29, 2023 /MONTSAME/.On the eve of the imminent 90th anniversary commemorating the establishment of the contemporary border protection organization, an assembly of over 450 female border guards has convened at the Central Cultural Palace.


During the conference, deliberations centered around pragmatic approaches to address the societal challenges faced by women border guards, the advancement of border units, as well as the values and leadership of female border personnel. In light of the occasion, the President of Mongolia and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Khurelsukh Ukhnaa, conveyed his felicitations to the women border guards and their families.


The President emphasized that it is the responsibility of both the state and the government to establish favorable conditions for the well-being of numerous women at the border units who have left their hometowns, families, and careers to accompany their husbands. He expressed his belief that these women residing in border areas and women border guards will make significant contributions towards fostering holistic development within military units and organizations. This includes creating green surroundings, promoting productivity within households, and shaping a robust and healthy Mongolian society.
