AMBASSADOR GALT: Hello. I am Jennifer Zimdahl Galt, the United States Ambassador to Mongolia.
On behalf of my colleagues and their families at the U.S. Embassy, I want to extend heartfelt greetings to the Mongolian people on the occasion of the New Year.
2016 was a year of tremendous accomplishments in the U.S.-Mongolia relationship, including a visit by Secretary of State John Kerry.
I look forward to even greater achievements in 2017, when we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and Mongolia.
I am confident that we will find new opportunities for cooperation in the year ahead that will further strengthen the warm, friendly ties between our two countries.
I wish you peace, happiness, health, and prosperity in 2017.
Happy New Year!
