AKIPRESS.COM - Gombojav Zandanshatar, head of the Mongolian cabinet secretariat, has asked social media giant Facebook to close fake accounts which disturb public order by spreading disinformation, the government's press office said Wednesday.

Zandanshatar made the request when meeting with a Facebook delegation led by George Chen, head of public policy for Mongolia and Chinese Hong Kong and Taiwan regions, and Jeff Wu, head of trust and safety for the Asia-Pacific region, Xinhua reported.

"Facebook is a platform where everyone could all share ideas, exchange views and also obstacles. But some people have been disturbing public order by spreading disinformation and rumors through fake accounts they have created," he said.

"Therefore, Facebook needs to control its users and close fake accounts," he added.

According to the Mongolian government's press office, the country with a population of just over three million has more than 1.5 million Facebook users.
