Select The Country:



JULY 2021


Presidential elections, the eighth to date since the country's transition to democracy in 1990, was held on 9 June 2021 amid fears and speculations around the COVID pandemic cases that has been on the rise in the country and following controversial changes to Mongolia's constitution that restricted presidents to one term in office.

Presidential election campaigns were low-key marred by Covid-19 restrictions and the much-anticipated 'Presidential TV Debate' scrapped after one the candidates from the National Labour Party tested positive for the coronavirus.

There were three candidates from the Parliamentary political parties. They were Ukhnaagiin Khurelsukh from the ruling Mongolian People's Party, Sodnomzunduin Erdene of the opposition Democratic Party and Dangaasurengiin Enkhbat of the 'Right Person' Electorate Coalition.

Prior to all I would like to extend my warm greetings to the readers of the Indian Empire and through them to the friendly people of India on the happy occasion of the 65th anniversary of the establishment of formal state to state relations between our two nations. These relations were formed on 24th December, 1955 on the basis of our traditional bonds. Although geographically far from each other, age-old spiritual, historical and cultural bonds bind us, which make us closer in hearts and minds. Our relations have grown up exponentially in these years and paradigm changes have taken place. I am in earnest belief that they have a promising future in the coming years not only bilaterally but also on the international arena. At this moment I should commend the far-sightedness of our previous generations. Even before the independence of India the First Asian Relations Conference was held in New Delhi in March, 1947 and Mongolian delegation came to participate in it. During this Conference they had discussed with Indian freedom fighters the principles for the newly liberated Asian countries, how to promote their relations which led to the Five principles of Peaceful Co-existence, known as Panchshila.

In next 15 to 20 years I think Indian companies will have firm foothold in Mongolia and their products will become in demand at surrounding markets. Mongolia and Indian joint secondary school in Mongolia would train scores of youth those would play a role of bridge between our two countries. ITC and virtual space might diminish physical hindrance for our trade and economic exchanges. Presently Mongolia exports crude oil and import petroleum products. However, through our bilateral collaboration we would be able to build up oil refinery that would provide Mongolia and the region with a good quality of products. Mongolia was named as the most ethical travels destination for 2016.

Both Chinggis Khan and Buddha hold relevance to make Asia in general, and India and Mongolia relations in particular, a source of inspiration for the world. Against this background that it would be pertinent to analyze how historical and political circumstances, as well as strategies and orientations of various groups and individuals, have led to multiple interpretations on Chinggis Khan and his legacy.

One is not required to be a scientist for grasping what are the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)? They are nothing but chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear agents meant for causing indiscriminate killing of human beings, regardless of being military or civilian, aged or kids.

The destinies of the East and West are no longer closed systems. In every one of us there is an East and a West. Each person has an East, a horizon he never reaches, a beyond where the sun rises, a dimension of hope.
