MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines and Mongolia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will promote defense cooperation between the two countries.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana held a bilateral meeting with his Mongolian counterpart Gursed Saikhanbayar on June 10 on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore, where they later signed the MOU, the Department of National Defense said on Monday.

The MOU aims to further boost cooperation between the two countries in defense and security policy, military education and training, capacity building, peacekeeping operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster response, defense industry and logistics, research and technology, and other areas agreed upon by both sides.

The two countries earlier discussed boosting defense ties in 2018 when Lorenzana was in Mongolia for the Asian Ministerial Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction.
