The United States has expressed hope that Mongolia will continue to send its 9th contingent of soldiers to Iraq in 2008, Mongolia's presidential press office said Friday.

"The president of the U.S., George W. Bush, hoped the country's activities in Iraq could be more effectual," U.S. Ambassador to Mongolia Mark C. Minton said during a meeting with Mongolia's President Nambaryn Enkhbayar.

Enkhbayar said Mongolia had been involved in Iraq since the very start and he would submit the U.S. request to Mongolia's National Security Committee.

In 2003 Mongolia sent its first group of soldiers to Iraq for post-war reconstruction and peacekeeping. Since then eight groups of soldiers have gone from Mongolia to the war-torn nation.
