In the greeting card, Shinzo Abe said, “Mongolia and Japan has the traditional culture of calligraphy in common, not only sumo. I hope this exhibition will promote the culture of both countries. Mongolia is an important and old friend of Japan. I paid an official visit to Mongolia on March 2014, and afterwards, President and Prime Minister of Mongolia visited Japan. This exhibition will strengthen cultural relations between our two countries.”
