Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. Premier of State Council of the People’s Republic of China Li Keqiang paid a courtesy call on the President of Mongolia Khaltmaagiin Battulga on February 27 and expressed gratitude to the latter for visiting China and showing moral support under the current circumstances that arose with the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The Premier said that China was providing accurate data in a timely and transparent manner to decelerate the spread of the novel coronavirus and expressed readiness to work with countries around the world towards bringing the situation under control.

It is believed that China’s traditional approach to curing the novel coronavirus, although no vaccine has yet been developed, has been proven effective, thus leading to the lowering of emergency levels in eight locations, including cities and provinces.

Premier Li Keqiang stressed the importance of maintaining vigilance until full control has been gained over the outbreak despite the fact that the provinces under lower levels of emergency directly shared borders with Mongolia, while expressing readiness to work with the corresponding institutions in Mongolia.

Furthermore, the Premier expressed his hope that bilateral trade and mutual travel will be normalized in a short amount of time once the existing challenge is overcome and expectations for the presidential visit to advance bilateral ties to a new level.

For his part, President Battulga noted that his visit was a manifestation of the solidarity between our two countries and that a constant line of communications and close cooperation between neighboring countries make an efficient tool for overcoming a crisis. President Battulga also concluded that the meeting had consolidated the friendly relations between the governments and peoples of Mongolia and China.

At the end of the meeting, President Battulga expressed his confidence in the success of the leading group, led by Premier Li Keqiang, on the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus outbreak, and wished the Chinese people well-being.
