Enigmatic press release o' the day

Or today's gem from the DPRK:

"Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il was presented with a gift by the head of the delegation of the Defence Ministry of Mongolia on a visit to the DPRK.
The gift was conveyed to Minister of the People's Armed Forces of the DPRK Kim Il Chol by State Secretary of the Defence Ministry of Mongolia Mikhlai Borbaatar who is leading the delegation today".

That's it. No detail. What does one give a man with a weakness for Mercs and the films of Liz Taylor that is authentically Mongolian? I imagine he would like to have a Mongolian Death Worm : "The creature is reported to be able to spray an acid-like substance that causes death instantly. It is also claimed that this creature has the ability to kill from a distance with some sort of super charged electrical charge". More likely is a case of kumis - fermented mare's milk. My only encounter with Mongolian liquids is millet vodka, which is unspeakably vile, but doubtless the ambrosia of the gods in comparison.

'...a gift OF the head..." would have been more appropriate in Mongol society, surely?
