China’s Xi visits Mongolia with focus on trade


ULAN BATOR: China’s Xi Jinping began a two-day trip to neighboring Mongolia on Thursday—the first Chinese president to visit in more than a decade—with trade high on the agenda against a backdrop of resource nationalism. Mongolian Prime Minister Altanhuyag Norov welcomed Xi and his wife Peng Liyuan at Ulan Bator’s international airport, named for the Mongolian conqueror Genghis Khan. “China and Mongolia are now standing at a new historical point in growing their relations,” Xi said according to China’s official news agency Xinhua.
