Statement by Secretary Tillerson

 Mongolia’s National Day


On behalf of the United States, our best wishes to the people of Mongolia as you celebrate your National Day on July 11th.

As the United States and Mongolia mark 30 years of diplomatic relations this year, we can look back with pride at our many shared accomplishments.  These include the people-to-people links that have been forged between our countries, the academic and cultural exchanges we have developed, our joint efforts advocating for human rights at the United Nations, and our mutual efforts in support of peace and stability in Afghanistan and around the world.

The United States is proud to have been part of Mongolia’s journey over the last 30 years, and we look forward to deepening our relationship in the years to come.
