Head of parliament jets off to Mongolia talks

Heng Samrin, president of the National Assembly, today led delegation of parliamentary officials to the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The event kicks off Sunday and will run until January 27. According to a statement from the National Assembly, Heng Samrin will give a speech on “the strengthening of peace and security in the region”. The forum will involve discussions on political and economic topics of regional concern, such as tensions in the Korean peninsula and combating terrorism. The APPF’s website says the organisation is “a loosely-structured and non-exclusive forum of national parliamentarians who participate either as delegates of their parliaments or in their personal capacities”.
