“I leave Mongolia with great joy. My visit was historic, path breaking & one that will take India's ties with Mongolia to spectacular heights” – this was how Prime Minister Narendra Modi described his recent visit to Mongolia. One-day visit by the Indian Prime Minister to the land of spiritual neighbour opened up broad avenues of partnership and cooperation between both the Nations.

The tour was historic as Shri Narendra Modi became the first Indian Prime Minister ever to land on Mongolian soil. The friendship between the two nations reached new heights with PM Modi meeting President Mr. Elbegdorj Tsakhia and discussing upon ways for strengthening India-Mongolia ties. The Prime Minister presented him a specially commissioned reproduction of a rare 13th century manuscript on the history of Mongols. In return, President of Mongolia also presented Shri Modi with a unique gift.

Numerous pacts were inked between both the Nations in the presence of PM Modi and PM Chimed Saikhanbileg for advancing peace, stability and prosperity in the region.  The agreements covered economic relations, development partnership, security as well as people to people partnerships. India took a major leap and considered Mongolia to be an integral part of India’s Act East Policy.

A Community Reception and Yoga Event was organised by ‘Art of Living’ in Mongolia. Shri Narendra Modi while visiting the Gandan Monastery where he presented a Bodhi Tree Sapling to Hamba Lama, the Mini Naadam Festival gave a boost to the cultural and spiritual ties with Mongolia.
