AKIPRESS.COM - Prime Minister of Mongolia Ukhnaa Khurelsukh received delegates led by United Nations Resident Coordinator in Mongolia Tapan Mishra.

At the beginning of the meeting, the Prime Minister stressed the solid support of the United Nations to Mongolia for its combat and prevention against the COVID-19 pandemic and asked to continue working together for economic recovery and repatriation of Mongolian nationals abroad, Montsame reports. 

The UN Mongolia Resident Coordinator conveyed to the Prime Minister that COVID-19 revealed that government of Mongolia could strongly benefit from a comprehensive and coherent program to maintain and deepen the relationship between the country and its citizens abroad. Moreover, he highlighted that the Mongolian government’s decision to increase monthly allowance for children to MNT 100,000 was an adequate solution as strict restrictions had been imposed in the country in the wake of the pandemic.

The sides also agreed to cooperate on establishing a multilateral partnership platform for a complex financial solution to ensure nationwide implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
