CHAIRMAN SMITH WELCOMES MONGOLIA INTO THE OSCE


Washington— Welcoming Mongolia’s successful application to join the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) as a participating State, Rep. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation (U.S. Helsinki Commission), said, “Mongolia has been an active partner with the OSCE as an Asian Partner for Cooperation since 2004 and by establishing a framework for cooperation with like-minded countries such as Mongolia, the OSCE is able to further its mandate particularly in addressing security threats and conflict prevention. We congratulate Mongolia for not only its accomplishments to date, including joining the OSCE, but also for its aspirations of strengthening its democratic development.”

Mongolia became the OSCE’s 57th participating State on November 21. The OSCE is the world’s largest regional security organization, working to ensure peace, democracy and stability for more than a billion people in Europe, Asia and North America. The decision to welcome Mongolia into the Organization was taken by consensus among the other participating States.
