BEIJING, Aug. 23 – Chinese President Xi Jinping’s fruitful visit to Mongolia is of greatpractical significance to the further development of bilateral relations, officials and expertssaid. The just-concluded two-day trip, which embodies the philosophy of “amity, sincerity,mutual benefit and inclusiveness” in China’s diplomacy with its neighbors, has also infusednew vigor into regional development, they added. Mongolian Deputy Prime Minister Dendev Terbishdagva, who also co-chairs the Mongolia-China intergovernmental commission, said the speech Xi delivered Friday at the Mongolianparliament impressed him a lot. What Xi said about Chinese history and world peace helped better understand China’spolicy of peaceful development, said the senior Mongolian official. Xi citation of the proverb that “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, gowith others” showed that China will support the development of its neighboring countries,Terbishdagva added. Mongolia and China are good neighbors and good friends, and what Xi remarked on China-Mongolia and international relations are extremely important, he said. Sanjaasuren Oyun, Mongolia’s environment and green development minister and also alawmaker, said Xi’s speech was “cordial and friendly, deep and comprehensive.” Mongolia and China are neighboring countries and the development of each of them isimportant to that of the other, she said, adding that the deepening of bilateral ties will setan example for other Asian countries. Migeddorj Batchimeg, a Mongolian lawmaker, said Xi’s speech elaborated China’s Mongoliapolicy, specified Mongolia’s standing in China’s foreign policy, and blueprinted thedevelopment of bilateral ties in the next decade. In the eyes of Alexander Larin, a senior researcher with the Institute of Far EasternStudies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, China, as a major country in the world, isshowing its strength by broadening economic relations with other countries. China has established a series of diplomatic strategic plans, among which building acommunity of shared destiny and interests is directly related to Mongolia, Larin said. The joint declaration signed by Xi and Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj showsthat China considers Mongolia as a completely equal partner, the researcher said. Upgrading China-Mongolia ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership, Larin added, willhelp the two countries deepen cooperation in various areas for the benefit both nations andalso their international reputations. Jabin Thomas Jacob, deputy director of India’s Institute of Chinese Studies, said Xi’s shortbut fruitful visit to Mongolia on Thursday and Friday showed a comprehensive upgrade ofdiplomatic, economic and trade relations between China and Mongolia. During Xi’s visit, the two sides signed a host of cooperation documents, covering such areasof trade and economy, mineral resources, electricity, transportation, and finance. Thatdemonstrated China’s great strength on the global economic stage and can be a major boostto any country that cooperates with China, Jacob said. Xi’s speech was very sincere, and particularly his comments on bilateral cooperationmanifested China’s demeanor as a major country, Jacob said. He noted that Xi cited the Chinese proverb that “A good neighbor is not to be traded forgold,” which showed the president will spare no efforts to establish good relations betweenChina and its neighboring countries. Mohamed El Saket, a former ambassador of the Arab League to China, pointed out thatChina attaches importance to improving relations with neighboring countries andstrengthening cooperation with them. China has one of the largest numbers of neighbors, and there is great potential forcooperation with those neighboring countries, El Saket said, adding that China fosteringgood relations with its neighbors is also critical to regional stability and development. Mongolia shares the longest section of China’s land borderline, and the two countries enjoygreat economic complementarity, he said, urging the two sides to use these advantages topromote cooperation and exchanges in various fields. Cha Jae-bok, chief researcher with South Korea’s Northeast Asian History Foundation, saidone of the highlights of Xi’s trip was economic cooperation. Noting that China’s economic importance to Mongolia is self-evident as it has beenMongolia’s largest trade partner and source of investment for many years, he said furtherboosting bilateral cooperation is conducive to achieving common development. He added that upgrading China-Mongolia relations and enhancing their win-wincooperation are key to safeguarding regional security, and that China-Mongolia relationshave bright prospects, just as Xi described in his signed article “Galloping Toward a BetterTomorrow for China-Mongolia Relations.” South Korea, as one of China’s neighboring countries, is glad to see China developingmutually beneficial relations with its neighbors, Cha said. Timur Katayamovich Kuvatov, director of Kazakhstan Today News Agency, said China’seconomic boom has brought a lot of opportunities to many countries, including China’sneighbors. China pays high attention to its neighbors and has been trying to foster an amicable andstable neighborhood, which shows China’s commitment to peaceful development, Timursaid. The cultivation of a good neighborhood will not only provide a peaceful environment forChina’s development but benefit China’s neighboring countries, he added. Azamat Attokurove, a Kyrgyz economist, said closer cooperation between China andMongolia will promote the development of the whole Asia. Mongolia has become an international transportation hub thanks to its unique geographicadvantages, and China and Mongolia are planning to jointly promote the construction of arail artery between Asia and Europe, he noted. Besides, he added, Mongolia is poised to actively participate in the construction of the SilkRoad Economic Belt proposed by China, which will exert positive influence on thedevelopment of Central and South Asia. Ichinaga Kitanaka, vice chairman of the Tokyo branch of the Japan-China FriendshipAssociation, said Xi’s visit was aimed at deepening relations with Mongolia. Xi’s inviting other countries to take China’s train of development is a very good proposal,Kitanaka said, adding that he welcomes China’s economic development and the consequentgradual formation of a new world economic system.
