On January 28, 2022, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi had a phone conversation with Mongolian Foreign Minister Batmunkh Battsetseg.

Wang Yi said, the year 2021 just passed was of great significance to both China and Mongolia as it marked the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and the Mongolian People's Party respectively. Under the strategic guidance of President Xi Jinping and President Ukhnaa Khurelsukh, the two sides have strengthened solidarity and cooperation, overcome the impact of the pandemic, and achieved new development in bilateral relations. Last year, I had an in-depth exchange of views with Ms. Foreign Minister in Tianjin, and we enhanced mutual trust and reached a lot of consensus. China is willing to work with Mongolia to constantly inject strong impetus into China-Mongolia cooperation and continuously elevate China-Mongolia relations to new heights.

Battsetseg extended Spring Festival greetings to China for the Year of the Tiger, and thanked China for its firm and strong support when Mongolia was in its most difficult time of fighting the pandemic. China's support played an important role in Mongolia's effort to defeat the pandemic. She said, Mongolia attaches great importance to deepening relations with China, highly commends China's neighborhood diplomacy featuring amity, sincerity, mutual benefit and inclusiveness, highly values and supports the Global Development Initiative proposed by President Xi Jinping, and hopes to seek greater synergy with China to expand all-round cooperation in fields such as trade in mineral products, border points of entry, interconnectivity, finance and environmental protection.

Battsetseg said, Mongolia firmly supports China in hosting a successful Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, and always opposes politicizing sports. Prime Minister Luvsannamsrai Oyun-Erdene is greatly looking forward to attending the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 in China.

Wang Yi said, China attaches importance to Mongolia's desire to seek greater synergy between the development strategies of the two sides and strengthen pragmatic cooperation. China is willing to work with Mongolia to step up coordination and implementation, and push for more substantive results in bilateral cooperation.

Wang Yi stressed, the Olympic Games are the symbol of human solidarity and friendship. As a friendly neighbor of China, Mongolia always supports China in hosting the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene was among one of the foreign leaders to first express the willingness to attend the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, and clearly expressed his opposition to politicizing sports. China highly appreciates that. China attaches great importance to and will make good arrangements for Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene's visit to China to ensure a complete success of this trip.
