Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ During his attendance at the 28th Annual Pacific Parliamentary Forum in Australia, Speaker of the State Great Khural G.Zandanshatar met with Chair of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation Konstantin Kosachev.

At the meeting, Speaker G.Zandanshatar emphasized the importance of enriching bilateral friendly ties with trade and economic  content and carrying out joint projects and programs.

Underlining that Russian President V.Putin’s visit to Mongolia made last year has given significant impetus to bilateral cooperation, Speaker G.Zandanshatar noted that the Victory of Khalkhyn Gol Battle, whose 80th anniversary was marked last year, is a joint victory of the people of the two countries and strong indication of friendship.
