Greeting on the opening of Russia-Mongolia Initiative 2018

June 7, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the participants and guests of the Russia-Mongolia Initiative 2018 series of events.

The message reads, in part:

“Russia highly values ​​relations with Mongolia, which are based on long-standing traditions of friendship, neighbourliness and mutual respect. Further developing the full range of bilateral relations in the spirit of strategic partnership is one of our foreign policy priorities in Eurasia. We attach special importance to expanding constructive political dialogue at all levels, and implementing joint projects in transport, infrastructure, energy and agriculture.

The events organised as part of Russia-Mongolia Initiative 2018 provide a good opportunity for communication between the representatives of central and local authorities, business circles and public organisations of our two countries. I am confident that your meetings will feature a detailed discussion on various aspects of trade, economic, investment and industrial cooperation between Russia and Mongolia, will facilitate the conclusion of new mutually beneficial contracts, and the exchange of professional experience and advanced scientific and technical developments.”

Russia-Mongolia Initiative 2018 is taking place on June 7–10 in Ulaanbaatar.
