China’s top legislator, Zhang Dejiang met with visiting Mongolian Prime Minister Norov Altankhuyag in Beijing on Friday.
Zhang, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), said China-Mongolia relations are currently enjoying their best time in history. He said China will firmly pursue the road of peaceful development and continue to carry out a friendly policy toward Mongolia.
“This will remain inalterable forever,” Zhang said.
Zhang said the two economies are highly complementary. Noting that Mongolia’s legislature, the State Great Hural, has recently passed a new investment law, Zhang said this is good news for China-Mongolia trade, economic cooperation and Chinese companies.
He said the NPC is ready to work with the State Great Hural to earnestly implement the memorandum of cooperation between the legislatures of the two countries by carrying out exchanges at all levels and strengthening the exchange of experience on legislation. He said the two sides should jointly create a sound legal environment for practical cooperation so as to lift inter-legislature relations to new levels.
Altankhuyag said it has been the stance of Mongolia’s foreign policy to expand a friendly and neighborly relationship with China. He expressed the wish to deepen bilateral cooperation in all fields and advance the strategic partnership for sustained growth.
On Friday, Altankhuyag also met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and held talks with Premier Li Keqiang.
