was marked with success by adopting the Declaration on the Advancement
North-Korean Relations, Peace and Prosperity. Full implementation of
Declaration will be crucial in improving inter-Korean relations and
the growing atmosphere of confidence and trust in the peninsula.
As a Northeast Asian nation with nuclear
weapon free status,
Mongolia views that
the peace and stability in the region. In this regard, Mongolia
welcomes this yearâ€™s progress achieved in the Six-Party talks on
of the Korean peninsula. Consent by the DPRK to disable all its
nuclear facilities is a major breakthrough. We look forward to early
implementation of all agreements reached among six nations.

process taking into account the fact that Mongolia
maintains an active relations and cooperation with both Koreas.
Therefore, we reaffirm our readiness to assist or facilitate the talks

reunification on the Korean peninsula has positive impact to the
of multilateral security cooperation mechanism in Northeast Asia, which
been advocated by Mongolia for a while. We are optimistic that in light

in the region and beyond.
