Mongolian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Gombojab Zandanshatar on Thursday received a group of children from China's earthquake-stricken Qinghai province.

"These children and youngsters are contributing to the friendship between our two countries," he said. "I would like to extend sincere congratulations to the representatives of youth and children of Qinghai province."

Fifty-nine children and youngsters from Qinghai in western China, which was hit by a major earthquake in April, are on an eight-day visit to Mongolia at the invitation of Mongolian Prime Minister Sukhbaataryn Batbold.

An ethnic Tibetan girl said: "We are happy with how our stay is organized and planned. We enjoy dancing and singing programs. We get along with Mongolian children very well and made a lot friends."

Last year, 60 children from China's southwestern Sichuan province, which was also hit by a deadly earthquake in 2008, visited Mongolia at the invitation of then Prime Minister Bayar Sanjaa.
