The President of Mongolia U.Khurelsukh has flown to Moscow today (15 December) pay an official visit to the Russian Federation. It is his first official visit to foreign country after becoming President of Mongolia in July.
During two days visit, President U.Khurelsukh will hold talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to exchange views on a wide range of issues of bilateral cooperation.
Moreover, a ‘Joint declaration on the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mongolia and the Russian Federation’ will be issued and documents of cooperation in some sectors will be signed. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Mongolia, with Moscow becoming the first foreign power to formally recognise Mongolia’s sovereignty in 1921.
U.Khurelsukh is the first president of Mongolia, elected for a six-year term, after the Mongolian Constitution was amended in 2019.
After the election was decided, the Kremlin promptly congratulated the newly elected president. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Khurelsukh spoke in July confirming ‘their mutual resolve to continue developing friendly ties and comprehensive strategic partnership between Russia and Mongolia’.
In September, U.Khurelsukh made a virtual appearance at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok.
