Ambassador pays courtesy call on former U.S State SecretaryPolitics
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Mongolia to the U.S. U.Batbayar paid a courtesy call on former U.S Secretary of State James Baker in Houston, Texas.
During the meeting, the Ambassador highlighted and expressed sincere appreciation for the Secretary’s valuable contributions made to the development of the Mongolia-US relations.
Secretary Baker’s consecutive visits to Mongolia in 1990 and 1991 played an important role in supporting Mongolians who unwaveringly chose the democratic path of development. Since his visit, a “third neighbor policy” concept was actively pursued within the foreign policy of Mongolia.
The Ambassador updated the Secretary on the latest developments in bilateral relations, including the Strategic Partnership between Mongolia and the U.S., and highlighted the 35th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between the two countries in 2022.
Secretary Baker shared his fond memories of having a fruitful discussion with then Foreign Minister Ts.Gombosuren as well as fishing in Mongolia. Ambassador U.Batbayar wished Secretary Baker and his family well-being, happiness, and success.
