Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated: “We value that bilateral relations between Mongolia and Russia are built upon long-standing economic, humanitarian and historical ties, and our common position on regional and global issues as good neighbours.”
“The aspiration of the leaders of the two countries to achieve maximum effectiveness of the strategic partnership potential have been reflected in the 2009 Declaration. Based on this Declaration, the Medium-Term Programme, incorporating the major objectives on developing cooperation in politics, trade-economy, investment, culture, education and global affairs, was signed in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar. The successful implementation of the programme gives an impetus to bilateral ties at all levels,” Minister Lavrov said.
The Foreign Ministers also discussed the much needed strengthening of economic ties through broader cooperation in transport, agriculture and energy, expansion of trade and ties between the border regions of Mongolia and Russia.
The two sides have agreed to boost ties through joint implementation of the projects specified in the Tripartite Programme on Establishing the Mongolia-Russia-China Economic Corridor.
