Mongolian foreign minister to urge DPRK to talk with Japan and U.S., exercise restraint

During its noon news on Sunday, NHK aired a report on its phone interview on Saturday with Mongolian Foreign Minister Tsogtbaatar, who was visiting Florida. Tsogtbaatar mentioned that a North Korean delegation is currently visiting Mongolia to mark the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries, thus stressing Mongolia’s close relationship with the DPRK. Commenting on the second U.S.-DPRK summit, he reportedly said that it was part of a long process, so there is no need to be discouraged. He pledged his country’s continued support for U.S.-DPRK dialogue and said that Mongolia will urge North Korea to continue to hold dialogue with the U.S. He was quoted as referring to DPRK’s recent testing of a new type of tactical guided missile as a “worrisome provocative act that will have a negative impact on the current trend of dialogue.” He reportedly indicated that he will urge the DPRK to exercise restraint. He also pledged the Mongolian government’s continuous support for dialogue between Japan and North Korea to find a solution to the abduction issue.
