Mongolia, Germany pledge to boost cooperation

ULAN BATOR, July 7 (Xinhua) -- Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj held talks with visiting German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier here on Monday, with both sides vowing to boost bilateral cooperation in various fields.

Germany had rendered huge support for Mongolia in the 1990s during its political and economic reform, Elbegdorj said.

"To continue this tradition, our two countries collaborated to open a new institute of minerals and technology in Nalaikh district and the most important thing is an investment in the educational sector," he added.

Steinmeier, for his part, said Germany is willing to push forward relations and cooperation with Mongolia in such fields as economy, environment protection, environmentally-friendly technology and renewable energy.

Germany will continue to help Mongolia with youth training programs, said the foreign minster, who arrived here on Sunday for a two-day official visit.
