About Us Mongolia

Statement by H.E. Mr. Ravdan Khatanbaatar
Ambassador of Mongolia on

Dear Mr. Chairman,

It is a pleasant task for me to convey greetings of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia, Mrs. S. Oyun, to all the participants of the Third Meeting of Ministers of the Foreign Affairs of the Conference of Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia and her best wishes for the Meeting.

Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia is an important Inter-governmental Forum for dialogue, consultations and implementation of confidence building measures on security issues in Asia. In short time CICA has achieved considerable success. The structure was set up aimed at current CICA activity. Adoption of the Catalogue of CICA CBM’s - the basic document, creates a real base for promoting the goals of the Conference. CICA is regularly organizing meetings at various levels where issues of various dimensions on realization of confidence building measures are being discussed.

Third meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs will evaluate the work that has been done, as well as determine direction of CICA’s further activity. We are confident that CICA’s role as a platform for discussion and exchange of views will expand possibilities in development of multilateral and mutually beneficial cooperation in various dimensions.

We participated in preparation of the documents which are being discussed at this Third Ministerial Meeting. There is no doubt that these documents will be accepted by the Ministers and will give a new impetus to further evolution of the CICA.

I would like to assure of you that Mongolia and will continue to actively interact with all the Member States and the CICA Secretariat with a view to create conditions for ensuring sustainable peace in Asia and economic growth of the Asian countries.

Thank you for attention.
