(SBU) E/P Chief met on May 15 with MFA Director for Multilateral
Relations Ms. Enkhtsetseg and drew on reftel points to urge that
Mongolia send a high-level, multi-sectoral delegation to the
upcoming OSCE conference on the Public-Private Partnership in
Combating Terrorism. Enkhtsetseg expressed appreciation for the
U.S. points and agreed with the value of the topic. In view of
MFA's limited travel budget, however, she said she was unsure
Mongolia could send anyone from Ulaanbaatar. She promised to
circulate the U.S. points to other relevant GOM agencies, who might
be able to participate. If they could not, she said, then Mongolia
would be represented at the conference by its mission in Geneva.
