ULAN BATOR, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Mongolia and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) had agreed to pursue cooperation in education, Mongolian official press said Wednesday.

An agreement was signed by the Mongolian National University and Kim Il Sung University on student exchanges and cooperation in education.

The agreement came during a visit by Kim Il Sung University President Song Ja Rip, who is also minister of higher education and chairman of the DPRK-Mongolia Friendship group in the DPRK People's Assembly.

Song met Damdin Tsogtbaatar, state secretary of the Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to discuss cooperation in the education sector.

Mongolia forged diplomatic relations with the DPRK in 1948. Hundreds of DPRK citizens currently work in Mongolia's construction, garment industries and agricultural sectors.
