No Kim Jong Un summit meeting for Mongolian President

Observers confused as to why no summit meeting took place

Mongolia's President Tsakhia Elbegdorj left North Korea on Thursday afternoon with DPRK state media providing no confirmation as to whether an expected meeting with Kim Jong Un had taken place.

Prior to Elbegdorj's arrival South Korean media speculated that the Mongolian leader would have a summit meeting with Kim Jong Un – an encounter that would have represented the North Korean leaders' first official meeting with another head of state.
