“Mongolia’s support to multilateralism goes far beyond its generous contribution to UN peacekeeping. With the NPT Review Conference on the way in New York, and the 77th anniversary of the atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki this month, it is particularly timely to recognize that Mongolia has shown its commitment to non-proliferation and disarmament by declaring itself a nuclear weapons-free zone. We live in a world with dramatic geopolitical divides. We live in a world where for the first time in decades people are thinking that a nuclear war might be possible again. We live in a world where conflicts proliferate everywhere. Mongolia, as an area free of nuclear weapons is an example of extraordinary importance and I want to pay tribute to that courageous decision.”

STORYLINE:

Secretary-General António Guterres today (9 Aug) told journalists, in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia that it was “particularly timely to recognize that Mongolia has shown its commitment to non-proliferation and disarmament by declaring itself a nuclear weapons-free zone.”

The Secretary-General arrived Monday evening (8 Aug) and was greeted by Minister for Foreign Affairs Battsetseg Batmunkh.

Earlier today he met with President Khurelsukh Ukhnaa, with whom he discussed the geopolitical situation in the region, the challenges Mongolia faces as a landlocked country, and Mongolia’s efforts to tackle climate change. 

He also met with the Speaker of the State Great Khural (Parliament) of Mongolia, Zandanshatar Gombojav, as well as with Batmunkh.

Speaking to reporters, he underscored that in a world with dramatic geopolitical divides and where conflicts proliferate everywhere, Mongolia - as an area free of nuclear weapons - is an example for other countries to follow.  

The Secretary-General also expressed his gratitude for the Mongolian peacekeepers for their service in UN peace operations, often in the most challenging settings.

He also took part alongside youth and peacekeepers in a tree-planting event for Mongolia’s One Billion Trees campaign. This campaign is one of the things Mongolia is doing to address climate change and desertification of its land. 

The Secretary-General also visited a nomadic family and learned about their way of life, and also met a group of beneficiaries from UN projects, including women entrepreneurs and youth activists.
