On June 23-24, MLI Senior Fellow, and Director of the Indo-Pacific Program, Jonathan Berkshire Miller, and MLI Research Advisory Board Member, Bryon Wilfert, attended the 7th Ulaanbaatar Dialogue on Northeast Asian Security.
Miller and Wilfert also launched the inaugural Canada-Mongolia Regional Security Dialogue in cooperation with MLI and the Institute of Strategic Studies of Mongolia on June 27th. The first Dialogue had robust discussions on security perspectives and areas for collaboration between Canada and Mongolia, beyond the status quo. Canada remains a top foreign investor in the country, yet lacks a more complete picture of the security environment. Mongolia also encouraged Canada to play a more robust and balanced role in the region, including through international security exchanges, dialogues and capacity building.
