Why Chinese Money Is not the Answer to Mongolia’s Economic Woes

[Нийтэлсэн: 21.10.2016] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Earlier this month, the Finance Minister and Central Bank Governor of Mongolia traveled to Washington. D.C. to hold initial discussions with the IMF regarding a loan to ease the country’s fiscal pressure.

[Нийтэлсэн: 09.06.2016] [Эх сурвалж: ]

In his brief visit on Sunday to the Land of the Eternal Blue Sky, United States Secretary of State John Kerry praised Mongolia as an “oasis of democracy” in a region with few examples. The trip by the top U.S. diplomat precedes parliamentary elections planned for June 29. Dozens of candidates are mounting campaigns for [...]

Mongolia’s Cybersecurity Cooperation

[Нийтэлсэн: 08.06.2016] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Mongolia has declared in its National Security Concept that it will develop friendly-neighbor relations and wide-ranging cooperation with the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China. Yet individuals and other groups both in China and Russia have attempted cyber attacks on Mongolia numerous times, most of which have been reported to the Cybersecurity Department [...]

US, Japan and Mongolia: Don’t Forget Asia’s Other Trilateral

[Нийтэлсэн: 08.10.2015] [Эх сурвалж: ]

As I have written previously, the past few years have witnessed the strengthening of several trilateral mechanisms in the Asia-Pacific, including U.S.-Japan-India and U.S.-Japan-Australia (See: “Why the ‘New’ US Trilateral Dialogue with Japan and India Matters”). One of the more neglected ones in the mix has been the U.S.-Japan-Mongolia trilateral.

Belarus: Mongolia’s Latest Partner?

[Нийтэлсэн: 12.07.2015] [Эх сурвалж: ]

At a bilateral meeting in Ufa, Russia—the site of summits for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, BRICS, and Eurasian Economic Union this week—Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj and Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko expressed their interest in deepening their bilateral ties and expending cooperation. According to reports by Belarusian state media, Lukashenko and Elbegdorj acknowledged similarities between their [...]

Modi in Mongolia: Cultural Crossroads in the Far East

[Нийтэлсэн: 17.05.2015] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s week-long tour of the East has been grabbing headlines, particularly because of his much-hyped first stop in China, which concludes today. On May 18, Modi will head to South Korea, another East Asian country with which New Delhi would like to improve its political standing. But sandwiched in between these [...]

Mongolia’s Dubious Merchant Navy

[Нийтэлсэн: 21.03.2015] [Эх сурвалж: ]

With more than 250 days of sun a year, Mongolia’s moniker – Land of the Blue Sky – is well deserved; its association with the deep blue sea, though, is less obvious. The nation’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, is located more than 1,300 kilometres from the ocean, and Mongolia is the largest landlocked country in the world. [...]

ASEM 2016: Mongolia in the Spotlight

[Нийтэлсэн: 11.12.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

At the end of October it was announced that Mongolia will host the 2016 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM). While this was reported in a number of local and international outlets, there has been little discussion of what it might mean for Mongolia – a reflection perhaps of the relatively unknown status and remit of ASEM. Nevertheless, [...]

Russia, China & Mongolia Begin Trilateral Talks

[Нийтэлсэн: 03.11.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Following up on Vladimir Putin’s September invitation for trilateral talks, Russian, Chinese and Mongolia deputy foreign ministers met in Ulaanbataar for the first-ever Russia-Mongolia-China trilateral consultation. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov kicked off the talks by remarking that the three countries share “vast borders, rich historic traditions, firm friendship of peoples, huge potential and [...]

Mongolia: Nomads in Transition

[Нийтэлсэн: 18.10.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Mongolia’s vast steppe is home to one of the world’s last surviving nomadic cultures. Situated between China and Russia, the Mongolian steppe remains mostly intact, and its nomadic way of life has been largely unchanged for generations. Some herding customs alive today pre-date the era of Genghis Khan. Slowly, however, the steppe’s landscape is changing, [...]

Mongolia Hosts Exercise Khaan Quest 2014

[Нийтэлсэн: 02.07.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Last week, roughly 1,000 troops from 23 countries began a peacekeeping drill, Exercise Khaan Quest 2014, designed to boost military-to-military interoperability in Mongolia, southwest of Ulanbataar. The exercise is partly focused on peacekeeping operations and also includes a combined training component between U.S. Army Pacific, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific and the Mongolian Armed Forces.

Mongolia Courts Foreign Investors

[Нийтэлсэн: 12.06.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Northeast Asia is a tough neighborhood for a country to stand out in these days. With China, Japan and South Korea as its major economic powerhouses and North Korea as its perennial basket case, Mongolia often manages to fly under the radar despite its huge ambitions on the world stage and activist foreign policy under [...]

Is Ulaanbataar Running Out of Water?

[Нийтэлсэн: 20.05.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Once known for its abundant and immaculate waters, the Tuul River flowing through Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbataar is rapidly shrinking. The Tuul has historically swung from high-flow cycles to low-flow cycles, but it had never dropped to the levels touched between 1996 and 2012, when its average water flow fell to around 10 cubic meters per [...]

The Ninja Miners of Mongolia

[Нийтэлсэн: 21.04.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

The rugged landscape in Zaamarr, 350 kilometers west of Ulan Bator in Mongolia, is sown with so many holes that it may cave in at any moment. Here, in the shadows of the big mining companies, thousands of “ninjas” labor relentlessly. The workers are named after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because of the green [...]

Mongolia: Activist and Ambitious

[Нийтэлсэн: 10.04.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Mongolia is fast becoming an ambitious country worth watching in the Asia-Pacific. Given its neighborhood, it is perhaps unsurprising that most attention is focused on its two (much) larger neighbors, but under the leadership of President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj the country’s foreign ambitions have grown considerably.

Mongolia: More Than Just a Courtesy Call

[Нийтэлсэн: 04.04.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

The significance of US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s visit to Ulan Bator this month should not be overlooked.

Mongolia Puts Ger Shantytowns on the Map

[Нийтэлсэн: 24.03.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Daynsaikhan’s ger sits at the very edge of Ulan Bator. Completely surrounded by snow, it appears cold and isolated, just a few meters from an illegal trash site. Inside, however, it is warm and cozy. The afternoon sun sneaks in through the roof window, lighting the basic, neat furniture: a few wardrobes, a television set, [...]

East Asia’s New Peacemaker: Mongolia?

[Нийтэлсэн: 29.11.2013] [Эх сурвалж: ]

The past year has heightened some important security landmines in East Asia. There is the usual cycle of “provocation followed by negotiation” by a not-so reformed regime in North Korea. More concerning however is the intractable, diplomatic tussle between Tokyo and Beijing over islands in the East China Sea. Add to this the fractured bilateral [...]

Mongolia Joins Shale Revolution, But at What Cost?

[Нийтэлсэн: 20.11.2013] [Эх сурвалж: ]

This spring, Genie Energy signed an agreement with the government of Mongolia, under which its subsidiary will explore oil shale over a five year period. Statements to the press have spun the agreement as a way for the country to achieve energy independence from Russia, as Mongolia currently imports 90 percent of its petroleum needs [...]

Modern Mongolia: From Genghis Khan to Traffic Jams

[Нийтэлсэн: 23.08.2013] [Эх сурвалж: ]

In Mongolia today there are reminders everywhere of the nation’s nomadic past. Upon arriving at Chinggis Khaan International Airport – the nation’s only international transit point – visitors are greeted by a statue of the fearless wandering conqueror of yore. Traditional portable homes – yurts – dot the outskirts of the capital city of Ulan [...]

Why Hasn’t Mongolia Developed Stronger Ties with Kazakhstan?

[Нийтэлсэн: 19.08.2013] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Since 1990, Mongolia has pursued a multidirectional foreign policy, forging strong ties with such global players as the United States, European Union, Japan, South Korea and India. This so-called “third neighbor policy” has given Mongolia much greater reach than might be expected as a small state sandwiched between Russia and China. Still, there are notable [...]
