MONGOLIA WILL NEVER HOST A U.S. MILITARY BASE, SAYS ELBEGDORJ

Mongolia will never host an American military base, Mongolian President Tsakhia Elbegdorj said Monday in an exclusive interview with TASS.
“When we ask Mongolian residents with which country it is necessary to cooperate, statistics show 60 percent prefer Russia, 15 to 20 percent choose China,” Elbegdorj, who was in Moscow for several hours prior to his visit to Europe, said. “The [rest of the] world is our third neighbor. Of course, we want to have good relations with all other countries. It’s good for our neighbors, too, because there appear more opportunities for investment,” he said.
“When someone somewhere asks whether an American military base may appear on Mongolian territory, [I can say:] it will never be like that,” Elbegdorj said.
He recalled that Mongolia’s Constitution bans deployment of foreign military bases on the country’s territory.
