On December, 15, Speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin met Chairman of the State Great Hural of Mongolia Miyegombo Enkhbold as part of inter-parliamentary cooperation.
Volodin pointed out that Mongolia remained Russia’s important partner. As the Speaker of the State Duma put it, “this is conditional upon common economic interests of our two countries, historically close ties between our peoples, and, what is also important, upon our commitment to common historical memory. In fact, this is the basis for our dynamic relations”.
In addition, Volodin highlighted the two countries’ active cooperation at an operative level. As he believed, “such collaboration in the economic realm still lags far behind our political dialogue. The medium-term strategic development program between Russia and Mongolia signed this April is designed to give stronger impetus to our bilateral relations”.
Besides, the two parties considered their inter-parliamentary interaction, especially the appointment of Sergey Mironov, the leader of the Just Russia faction, as Head of the parliamentary group for cooperation with Mongolia.
