Prime Minister Batbold Sukhbaatar said Friday that his country wants to develop ties with China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

Enhancing cooperation at the border areas of the two countries plays an important role in widening bilateral trade and economic cooperation, and Mongolia has been paying attention to developing its relations with the border areas and autonomous regions of China, the prime minister said.

Sukhbaatar spoke during talks with a Chinese delegation led by Arken Imirbaki, chairman of the Standing Committee of the Xinjiang Regional People's Congress.

Mongolia and China have 13 ports at the border, four located in Xinjiang.

Sukhbaatar said that Mongolia aims to resolve the questions concerning infrastructure, industry and services at the ports.

He said that Mongolia wants to boost ties with Xinjiang in developing agriculture, animal husbandry, ancillary sectors and working industries.

Imirbaki said that he values development of the bilateral ties. He said that the Xinjiang region is ready to develop together with Mongolia.
