N. Korea inks cooperation pact with Mongolia

From Yonhap:

North Korea on Tuesday signed an agreement on diplomatic cooperation with Mongolia, the North’s state-controlled media said.

The agreement was signed by Kim Yong-il, North Korea’s vice foreign minister, and Mongolian Ambassador to Pyongyang Janchivdorjyn Lomvo, reported the (North) Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), monitored here.

The news agency, however, failed to provide details on the contents of the agreement.

North Korea and Mongolia established diplomatic relations in 1948. Mongolia closed its embassy in Pyongyang in August 1999 before reopening it five years later.

The KCNA also reported North Korean parliamentary representatives held a meeting with an Indonesian parliamentary delegation to discuss ways of promoting bilateral cooperation.

“Both sides exchanged views on issues of mutual concern and ways of furthering the relations between the parliaments of the two countries amid growing bilateral cooperation in various fields,” the news agency said.

The Indonesian delegation arrived in Pyongyang on Monday.
