Mongolia proposes cooperation with Italy in leather and cashmere production


Foreign Affairs Minister of Mongolia L.Purevsuren, who is attending the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly, met his Italian counterpart, Paolo Gentiloni, on September 28. The ministers shared their views on expanding and improving bilateral relations and collaboration.
The ministers talked about organizing a business forum and exhibition about Mongolia at Milan Expo, during a visit to Italy by high ranking Mongolian delegacies in the near future, to be conducted for the 45th anniversary of Mongolia-Italy diplomatic relations. They also discussed opening an Italian embassy in Mongolia and hosting a Mongolia-Italy intergovernmental commission meeting in order to strengthen inter-parliamentary relations.
Minister L.Purevsuren asked Italy for support in training and scholarships for Mongolian students and specialists at Italian universities and institutes with scholarships, particularly in the field of opera, arts, and culture. Mentioning the wide opportunities to cooperate with Italy in the food and agriculture sectors, especially exporting meat products, leather, wool, and cashmere products to Italy, L.Purevsuren expressed Mongolia’s interest in bringing Italian leather processing technology and design to Mongolia, and increasing leather and cashmere product trade between the two countries.
The Ministers also discussed multilateral cooperation issues of mutual concern. Mongolia is a candidate for the UN Human Rights Council elections to be held in October 2015, and as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in the council’s elections to be held in 2022. Minister L.Purevsuren reaffirmed his hope that Italy will participate in the ASEM Summit to be held in Mongolia in 2016, at a high level of representation and expressed his interest in gaining support for preparation for the meeting, as Italy was host country for the 2014 ASEM Summit.
On the following day, Minister L.Purevsuren submitted Mongolia’s instrument of ratification to the Minamata Convention on Mercury and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child in a communications procedure with the UN Secretary-General in New York.
