UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon praises President Ts.Elbegdorj


During the visit of the President of Mongolia and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Mongolia, Ts.Elbegdorj, to Mongolian troops who are participating in the UN peacekeeping operations in South Sudan, the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon, expressed his gratitude to Ts.Elbegdorj on the phone.

The UN Secretary General said, “It is a prideful thing that you, the President of Mongolia, Ts.Elbegdorj, have become the first head of a foreign country to visit South Sudan and the first president of Mongolia to visit its peacekeepers.”

President Ts.Elbegdorj replied by saying, “We are getting familiar with the operation and activity of our peacekeepers in South Sudan. Mongolia will continue to actively participate to maintain peace in the youngest UN member country.”  He also talked to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon about the UN helicopter with Russian passengers which was shot and destroyed in South Sudan.

Furthermore during the phone conversation, President Ts.Elbegdorj invited Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon to attend plenary summit of the Community of Democracies, chaired by the president himself.
