China and Mongolia are friendly neighbors and bilateral relations have developed smoothly through the joint efforts of both sides, said Sang Guowei, vice-chairman of the Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress, at a meeting with President Tsakhia Elbegdorj.

Sang was heading a Chinese delegation on a visit to Mongolia from Oct. 12 to Oct. 15.

For his part, Elbegdorj said to strengthen and develop its friendly and good-neighborly cooperation with China is a priority in Mongolia's foreign policy.

Mongolia is ready to enhance the exchange of high-level visits with China, deepen bilateral cooperation, and boost cooperation and exchanges in such fields as culture and education, he said.

At a meeting with his Mongolian counterpart Gavaa Batkhuu on Monday, Sang said China will strengthen inter-parliamentary cooperation with Mongolia in various fields.

Batkhuu said inter-parliamentary collaboration has played a significant role in developing the good-neighborly relations of mutual trust between the two countries, and he hoped Sang's visit would contribute to the bilateral partnership.
