Matviyenko called on President Ts.Elbegdorj on Monday and conveyed President of Russia Vladimir Putin’s sincere greetings to President Elbegdorj. In his greetings Putin mentioned that he held a private meeting with President Elbegdorj in Shanghai during their participation in the Fourth Summit of the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia, and underscored the importance of the regular exchange of high-level visits between the two countries.
Chairwoman Matviyenko pointed out that bilateral relations have been successfully developing at the strategic partnership level, and emphasized the successful operations of Mongolian-Russian joint ventures and the successful implementation of bilateral agreements on economic partnership through 2015.
According to the official website of President Elbegdorj, both sides discussed opportunities for allowing Mongolian citizens to travel to Russia without a visa, jointly developing light industry, and organizing a business forum.
In August, the upcoming 75th anniversary of the victory of the battle of Khalkhin Gol will be celebrated, and in May 2015, Victory Day will be marked. Concluding the meeting, President Elbegdorj expressed his hope that President Putin will visit Mongolia this August as part of the anniversary celebrations of the Soviet-Mongolian victory at Khalkhin-Gol, and proposed organizing a Russia-China-Mongolia trilateral dialogue on transit transportation issues in Ulaanbaatar.
ITAR-TASS News Agency reported that the Mongolian Speaker of the Parliament Z.Enkhbold hopes to sign a deal on visa-free travel with Russia in August.
According to the report, Z.Enkhbold told ITAR-TASS that in August, Mongolia expects that Vladimir Putin will attend celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the victory at Khalkhin Gol, and believes that during President Putin’s visit the agreement will be signed. “Talks on this issue have lasted five years, and agreement has already been reached at the level of foreign ministries,” he said. “We are convinced that the transfer to visa-free rules will attract new investors and tourists,” Speaker Z.Enkhbold told ITAR-TASS.
