The relationship between China and Mongolia has enormous prospects and the two countries should tangibly take care of core interests and the major concerns of each other, President Xi Jinping said when meeting with Mongolian Prime Minister Jargaltulga Erdenebat in Beijing on Friday.

Erdenebat is in China to attend the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, which is scheduled to take place from Sunday to Monday.

The two sides should deepen mutual trust and make sure the development of the relationship does not drift away from the track, Xi said.

The countries should also accelerate the feasibility study into a bilateral free trade area and their cross-border economic cooperation, and expand cooperation in various fields, including mineral and major energy projects, infrastructure and connectivity, Xi said.

Cooperation should be enriched in areas such as youth, media and localities to boost the friendship and mutual trust between the two peoples, Xi said.

Mongolia is an important country along the routes of the Belt and Road Initiative and China welcomes the participation of Mongolia in its building, Xi said.

China supports Mongolia's role as a bridge and a bond that connects the Eurasia continent, Xi said.

The two countries should implement cooperation in areas such as trade, investment, connectivity, agriculture and husbandry, production capacity, and energy, Xi said.

The Mongolian Prime Minister said it is a priority for Mongolia to develop friendly cooperation with China and Mongolia upholds the one-China policy.

Mongolia attaches great significance to the Belt and Road Initiative in tackling the imbalance in mankind’s development and promoting world peace and development, Erdenebat said.

Mongolia is ready to play its role as a bridge to connect the Eurasia continent and proactively participate in the mutually beneficial cooperation within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative, Erdenebat said.

Xi also noted that the construction of China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor should be pushed forward to facilitate the common development of all the three parties.
