On August 8, 2014, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Mongolian Foreign Minister Luvsanvandan Bold on the sidelines of the series of Foreign Ministers' meetings on East Asia cooperation in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
Wang Yi said that this year marks the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Mongolia, the 20th anniversary of the signing of the China-Mongolia Treaty on Friendly Relations and Cooperation as well as the Year of Friendly Exchanges between China and Mongolia. We believe that this year will be an important one in the course of the development of bilateral relations. The two sides should step up high-level interactions, strengthen political mutual trust, further advance their relations in both scale and scope, work for new breakthroughs in practical cooperation in connectivity, energy and resources, so as to open up broader prospects for bilateral cooperation. People-to-people and cultural exchanges should also be expanded so as to nurture the mutual understanding and amicable feelings between the two peoples.
Foreign Minister Bold said that the Mongolian side attaches great importance to relations with China, stands ready to work with China toward the shared goal and seize the opportunity to elevate bilateral relations to the new height.
