오치르바트 몽골 초대 대통령 특별 대담: '북한, 경제 위해 핵 포기해야' The ties between South Korea and Mongolia seem to have become stronger than ever, especially following President Park Geun-hye's recent visit to Ulaanbaatar. And to explore how deep the bilateral realtion goes, our Song Ji-sun sat down with Punsalmaagiin Ochirbat the first leader of that country. The ex president shared his vision for Seoul and Ulaanbaatar,... and even offered a piece of advice to Pyongyang. Thank you so much for joining us. Mr. Punsalmaagin Ochirbat. He is the first president after Mongolia shifted to capitalism and democracy in the 1990s. He is also the one who established diplomatic ties with South Korea. How would you rate the ties between South Korea and Mongolia after 26 years of diplomatic relations? "The relationship between Mongolia and Korea has been comprehensive and efficient, headed in a direction of development that the people of both nations desire. But as we move forward, the ideal direction of exchange is to combine Mongolia's industries with Korea's technology, facilities, and knowledge. By using Mongolia's raw materials, we can create more added value through Mongolian exports, and it is now necessary and the right time for Mongolia and Korea to transition to a win-win relationship." When looking back... Mongolia established great economic development after transition into democracy and capitalism over the past three decades. What message do you think this can convey to the Pyongyang and what ideas or suggestions do you have for the Pyongyang government? "We're now in a new era in which a nation must be secured with its economic growth and power. The only way to stop Pyongyang's nuclear development is by having countries around the world pay more attention to North Korea's economic issues and encouraging the regime to revive its economy. If there's something it can gain from our experience, I hope it will use that to its fullest." Thank you so much for sharing your insights on North Korea and setting the vision for future relations of Mongolia and South Korea. And we also appreciate your initiative for the unification on the Korean peninsula here in Mongolia. Mr. Punsalmaagin Ochirbat, former president of Mongolia.
