ULAN BATOR, June 12 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Latvian President Andris Berzins said here Thursday that Mongolia can use Latvian sea ports to export its products to any European country.
At a meeting with Mongolian Prime Minister Altankhuyag Norov, Berzins said there are wide possibilities for the two countries to work together in economic areas, especially in the transportation and logistics sector.
Altankhuyag noted that relations between the two countries have been continuously developing since the establishment of diplomatic relations, and expressed his hope that the Latvian president's visit would elevate cooperation and relations to a new level.
At a separate meeting, Mongolian President Elbegdorj Tsakhia said the two countries have many similarities and share common values.
"As Mongolia is a landlocked country, we have much interest in expanding economic cooperation with Latvia and the European Union through your sea ports. We have much cooperation potential to work in this area," he said.
Berzins said Latvia, along with Poland and Finland, is one of the three Baltic states forming the eastern frontier of the European Union.
"We fully support your position to cooperate," he said.
The Latvian president arrived here Wednesday for a two-day visit.
