China is willing to work with Mongolia to plan high-level exchanges and priorities in cooperation to push for greater development of bilateral ties, further setting an example in neighborly relations, senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi said on Thursday.
Wang, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and director of the Office of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs, made the remarks when meeting with Mongolian Deputy Prime Minister S.Amarsaikhan, who came to China to attend the third China Xizang Trans-Himalaya Forum for International Cooperation in Nyingchi, southwest China’s Xizang Autonomous Region.
Wang noted that China and Mongolia are friendly neighbors, sharing not just common mountains and rivers but also weal and woe.
The two sides should be guided by the important consensus of the two heads of state, adhere to mutual respect for independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as respect for each other’s core interests and major concerns, said Wang, urging both sides to strengthen mutual trust, enhance communication and resolutely promote bilateral relations to make steady progress in the new era and advance the building of a China-Mongolia community with a shared future.
For his part, Amarsaikhan said that Mongolia-China relations are developing with sound momentum, and cooperation in various fields has intensified, especially economic and trade cooperation, which has played an important role in Mongolia’s economic development.
Noting the Mongolian side is deeply satisfied with the development of bilateral relations and full of confidence in the future of the relationship, Amarsaikhan said it will firmly pursue a friendly policy towards China, respect each other’s core interests and push bilateral ties to a new level.
