Mongolian Parliament Speaker Demberel Damdin met his Turkish counterpart Mehmet Ali Sahin here on Friday, exchanging opinions on how to boost cooperation between the two countries.

Sahin said: "I'm very happy to visit Mongolia, land of ancestors of the Turkish nation... Our two countries have brotherly relationship. Although our countries are geographically isolated, our hearts are close."

"Relationship between parliaments of Mongolia and Turkey dates back to the 1990s. We just signed an agreement to further inter-parliamentary cooperation between our two countries. Inter-parliamentary cooperation means cooperation between people as parliament is elected by people," he added.

Sahin will also meet Mongolian President Elbegdorj Tsakhia and Prime Minister Batbold Sukhbaatar.

During the visit, the Turkish parliament speaker is expected to attend the annual Naadam festival which includes archery, wrestling and horse racing.

Mongolia and Turkey established diplomatic relations in June 1969.
