He quoted a proverb and said, “If you want to get a good horse, you should buy now. Because the foal is regarded as good one and it is now good timing.” I responded quickly to the Mongolian economic delegation on the stage by saying that I would buy now. I said so because Mongolia looked as foal. Japan and Mongolia have taken a new step, it is time to cooperate together for the global agenda in front of us. I am looking forward to hearing Ambassador’s remarks on various topics today.”

Ambassador Khurelbaatar talked with timely topics about recent Mongolian political and economic situation and Japan-Mongolia relations. After the speech, he replied to questions from the attendants, followed byexchange of business cards.
