By the intergovernmental talks, our countries have managed to resolve many issues which had not been touched for many years. The opening of the Embassy of Belarus in Mongolia as well as the appointment of the Ambassador mean that Belarus attaches great importance to the relations with Mongolia,"this is a clear example of expanding the ties," Mr Elbegdorj emphasized.
Expressing gratitude to the President for the audience, Mr Chepurnoi affirmed that the bilateral relations have been boosting in recent years, and added that a frequency of high-level mutual visits is increasing thanks to forming a legal environment for the cooperation.
The Ambassador invited again the Mongolian President to Belarus hoping that this will significantly contribute not only to the bilateral political ties, but also to the economic and trade cooperation. Mr Chepurnoi also said his country wants to expand the agricultural cooperation with Mongolia "because Mongolians know well the Belarus-made agricultural machines and techniques".
"We want to cooperate with Mongolia in supplying hi tech products, vehicles, road and construction technologies. We already have started working out specific projects and programmes on the cooperation after the visit of our Prime Minister to Mongolia. The opening of the Embassy is vital to the realization of these plans," Mr Chepurnoi said.
Appreciating proposals on setting up joint factories and enterprises, the leader of Mongolia said the Belarus-made machines and techniques are needed here because our mining, industry and agricultural sectors are expected to boost. He hoped that Mongolia will become a bridge for Belarus to penetrate the Asian market.
