Mongolia on Saturday celebrated the International Day of UN Peacekeepers on its own territory.

Mongolian President Tsakhia Elbegdorj attended the ceremony together with members of the Parliament, overseas guests and Mongolians who have served on international peacekeeping missions.

After the Mongolian national anthem was played, Elbegdorj made a speech to peacekeepers, hailing them for fulfilling their duties with honor.

"The Mongolian Armed Forces are always ready upon the call of their country and people. They have played an active role in international and UN peacekeeping activities. The Mongolian government and the people are expressing their respect to those who are serving the peacekeeping missions," Elbegdorj said in his speech.

Mongolia has been engaged in UN peacekeeping missions since 2002. The Mongolian peacekeepers have served in Iraq, the People's Republic of the Congo, Sudan, West Sahara, Ethiopia, Georgia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Chad and the Central African Republic.
