Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The Government of Mongolia today, April 30, decided to provide USD 1 million as humanitarian assistance to help India deal with a massive surge in COVID-19 cases in the country. 

On Monday, Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene met with Ambassador of India to Mongolia Mohinder Pratap Singh and conveyed a letter of solidarity and support to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

“India is regarded Mongolia’s spiritual neighbor and an important strategic partner. The two countries have been providing reciprocal support for each other and elevated their diplomatic ties to Strategic Partnership in 2015. In February 2020, Mongolia received its first 150,000 doses of vaccine against COVID-19 from India as an aid from the Indian Government, and an oil refinery is under development in Mongolia with soft loan from India. While Mongolia and India are maintaining a relationship in a wide range of areas of economy, society, culture and education, the two nations are holding talks on coal exports.” reports the Cabinet Press Office.
