Mr.Alain Pelce mentioned there is an urgent need to improve the Labour Code of Mongolia in conformity with basic labour norms released by the International Labour Organisations and requested the Commission to mention this in its 16thAnnual Report on human rights and freedoms.

Through this meeting the parties discussed issues of labour of conscripted servicemen of armed force and labour of prisoners and exchanged their views on these matters.
