Mongolia maintains comprehensive partnership relations with the Republic of Korea and a friendly relationship with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. A forum held in Ulaanbaatar on June 7-8, 2018 brought together leaders and experts to highlight the role of Mongolia in promoting inter-Korean relations and contributing to regional peace and stability.
March 1, 2019 will mark the 100th anniversary of Korea’s national liberation movement. During the 1920’s and 30’s, Korean patriots had historical contacts with and worked in Mongolia and left historic imprints rooted in a common heritage of shared values.
Ensuring long-term peace and stability on the Korean peninsula is currently one of the most pressing objectives of Northeast Asia and the international community. Recent resumption of political contact between the two Koreas offers a chance of not only reducing tension on the peninsula, but also to increase inter-Korean confidence and cooperation.
This civil society forum promoted the recent positive developments on and around the Korean peninsula that can contribute to the cause of Korean unification.
