Their Imperial Highnesses Prince and Princess Akishino to Visit Mongolia

May 11, 2000

The President of Mongolia has invited Their Imperial Highnesses Prince and Princess Akishino to visit Mongolia. In light of the friendly relations existing between Japan and Mongolia, a visit some time between the last part of June and early July is now being studied at the level of government officials.

The forthcoming visit, the first of its kind by members of the Imperial Family, will take place on the occasion of the Japan-Mongolia Millennium Festival of Friendship and Culture.

During their stay in Mongolia, the Imperial couple will take part in the opening of the Festival, meet with the President, and attend a dinner to be given by the President. Also on their itinerary will be a visit to a cultural facility in Ulaanbaatar, a tour to the Gobi Desert region and other regional areas.
