Park meets with Mongolia's parliamentary speaker

SEOUL, March 14 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Park Geun-hye met with Mongolia's parliamentary speaker on Friday and discussed ways to strengthen relations between the two countries and promote regional cooperation, officials said.
Zandaakhuu Enkhbold, who became speaker in 2012 of the State Great Hural, Mongolia's unicameral parliament, has been on a four-day visit to South Korea since Tuesday at the invitation of his South Korean counterpart and National Assembly Speaker Kang Chang-hee.
"I believe that close parliamentary exchanges have contributed greatly to the development of relations between the two countries," Park said at the start of the meeting with Enkhbold, adding that she hopes Enkhbold's visit will serve as an opportunity to move the relations further forward.
Enkhbold said that Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj asked him to convey his regards to Park and wished her good health and happiness. Park also asked the parliamentary speaker to convey her regards to the Mongolian president.
Park also said that it was meaningful that Elbegdorj urged North Korea to become a member of the international community when he visited Pyongyang in October. The four-day trip made Elbegdorj the first foreign head of state to visit Pyongyang since North Korean leader Kim Jong-un took power after the death of his father Kim Jong-il in late 2011.
At the end of the trip, the Mongolian leader delivered a lecture at Kim Il Sung University. In the speech, he urged Pyongyang to let its people "live free" and emulate Mongolia's model of transformation, saying, "No tyranny lasts forever."
