By M.ZOLJARGAL

Last week, Ambassador of Mongolia to the United States B.Altangerel signed an agreement on the repatriation of Mongolia-originated items collected at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Department (ICE).
The U.S. Government agreed to return dinosaur fossils that were smuggled from Mongolia to the U.S. under the newly signed contract. A repatriation ceremony is planned for early July.
Special Representative of the International Operations of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Lucy Ecsamilla co-signed the agreement.
