    The 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit in Mongolia's capital Ulaanbaatar started with a minute of silence in light of the deadly Nice truck attack.

    ULAANBAATAR (Sputnik), Anastasia Levchenko — The 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit in Mongolia's capital Ulaanbaatar started with a minute of silence in light of the deadly Nice truck attack, a Sputnik correspondent reports.

    On Thursday night, a truck rammed into a crowd watching Bastille Day fireworks in the French city of Nice. Anti-terrorism prosecutors are investigating the deadly attack that killed over 70 people.

    The 11th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM11) Summit kicks off in Mongolia on July 15 and will last two days. The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an informal interregional dialogue that addresses political, security, financial, economic, social and cultural issues.
