Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. At the opening of Khaan Quest-2019 held at the Five Hills Training Area on June 14, President and Commander-In-Chief of the Mongolian Armed Forces Kh.Battulga delivered a speech. 

President Kh.Battulga said, "Peacekeeping mission has still remained one of the significant means to conduct various assignments ceasing armed conflicts, protecting the civilians, conducting disaster relief and rescue operations, providing humanitarian assistance, and rendering rehabilitation activities.

As a peace-prioritizing and a full-fledged member of the international community, Mongolia has been sending our Armed Forces to peacekeeping missions since 2002. Concurrently 17 thousand service members have served in the missions.

Peacekeeping is a tough job that requires training, endurance, courage, agility and skills. Constant training of the peacekeeping personnel allows to increase the mission execution capability and minimize the possible risks. Also it has extensive benefit to strengthen inter-operability and mutual understanding.

“Khaan Quest 2019” exercise is co-organized with the US Indo-Pacific Command and “Global Peace Initiative” program. I believe that this annual exercise would be beneficial for the peacekeepers to improve the professional skills, courtesy, discipline, knowledge, experience, and endurance.

I would like to wish the best success for the blue helmets who have the global efforts towards peace for the 17th iteration of “Khaan Quest” exercise. 

May world peace be strengthened and nations be in peace!”
