Met Mongolian State Secretary (of Wikileaks fame)

I recently met the Mongolian State Secretary who is mentioned in the recently leaked US cables. The Mongolians received a North Korean delegation and Mongolian diplomats passed on messages from the North Koreans to the US indicating a desire for bilateral dialogue. The Mongolians also highlighted a desire by North Koreans to shift their focus to the economy. I discussed the possibility of support for our knowledge-sharing programs in a variety of ways with the State Secretary.
