Your Excellency, you are visiting India at the time when the relation between Mongolia and India is developing very actively, and we would like to ask you to share your opinion on the status of our bilateral relations.
One of the priority areas of the foreign policy of Mongolia is to develop and broaden relations and cooperation with Asian and Pacific countries, and for us the Republic of India with whom we share more than thousand years of historic and cultural relations is one of the major partners in the region.
