Commemorating Khan

The Embassy of Mongolia and the Mongolian Community Association in Washington, D.C., want to erect a monument to that most prolific of conquerors, Genghis Khan.

Michael Johnson of the D.C. Office on Planning said that the groups, like any others wishing to erect a statue on city land, must apply to the agency's Commemorative Works Committee with detailed plans and designs. He said "greater weight" usually is given to honorees with a local connection but declined to comment on Genghis Khan. [Link]
