U.S. Congressional Delegation Official Visit to Mongolia

A delegation of five Representatives of the Congress of the United States is visiting Mongolia from September 16 to September 18.  The bipartisan delegation is led by Representative Ted Yoho from Florida, Chair of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific and the Congressional Mongolia Caucus.  The visit is a reflection of the close U.S. – Mongolian bilateral relationship and an opportunity to discuss shared values, interests, and goals.

The U.S. Congressional delegation was received by the President of Mongolia Kh. Battulga at the State Palace for talks on a range of important economic and security issues affecting both countries.  Both sides expressed their commitment to deepening the economic, security, educational, and cultural relationship between the United States and Mongolia.  In addition, they discussed coordination on international responses to regional security threats, increasing bilateral trade and investment, and the importance of a rules-based order in the Indo-Pacific region.  The Congressional delegation commended Mongolia for its commitment to democratic principles and expressed their bipartisan support for Mongolia’s continuing development efforts.  The U.S. Congressional delegation will also meet with Speaker of the Mongolian Parliament M. Enkhbold and Minister of Foreign Affairs D. Tsogtbaatar to exchange views on bilateral relations and international cooperation.
