Chinese President Hu Jintao and his Mongolian counterpart Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj on Thursday exchanged congratulatory messages on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

In his message, Hu said the past 60 years have witnessed the deepening of China-Mongolia relations.

Hu said the treaty on friendly and cooperative relations signed in 1994 has laid a more solid political and legal foundation for bilateral ties.

Their bilateral relationship entered a new phase of development in 2003, with the establishment of the China-Mongolia good-neighborly partnership of mutual trust, he said.

It is the Chinese government's firm policy to develop the China-Mongolia good-neighborly partnership of mutual trust on the basis of the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, Hu said.

China is ready to work with Mongolia to strengthen exchanges and cooperation in various fields and at different levels, he said.

Elbegdorj said bilateral ties between the two countries have stood the test of time.

Their bilateral relationship has been developing steadily in various fields both in form and substance, especially since President Hu's visit to Mongolia in 2003, he said.

The Mongolian side is fully confident about the prospects of bilateral ties, he said.
