On Aug 17, State Great Khural approved the draft agreement between the Government of Mongolia, the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Association to open a representative office in the capital of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar city. Thus, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ts.Munk-Orgil was obliged to sign the agreement. 

The European Union has made the decision to open its representative office in Mongolia on Jul 20. 

"Mongolia plays an important role in a complex region with a unique geostrategic position. This representative office is an investment of the European Union in connection with the strengthening of our relations with Mongolia and our commitment to the people of the country. We will also sign our new Partnership and Cooperation Agreement soon, which will once again demonstrate the importance that we give to the development of our close ties", - said Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini. 

A head of the office will be appointed within September and its operation will start from Jan 1, 2018. The representative office will be accommodated at the Italian Embassy in Ulaanbaatar. Given the opening of a new office in Ulaanbaatar, the EU will have a total of 140 delegations around the world.
