Wen said the two countries were committed to promoting peace and stability in northeast Asia and cementing bilateral exchanges and cooperation in various areas.

China persists in the building of good-neighborly relationships and partnerships with its neighbors, Wen said, calling on joint efforts with Mongolia to further strengthen bilateral ties and long-term friendship.

The two countries' economies were highly compatible, Wen said, calling on relevant departments to enhance coordination and support enterprises to expand cooperation and contribute to a new round of economic growth for both countries and the region as a whole.

Batbold, who just finished his trip to the Boao Forum in south China's Hainan Province, said his current China visit was fruitful.

High-level exchanges were pivotal to the growth of bilateral ties, Batbold said, adding his country expected a visit from Premier Wen at an early date.

Mongolia hoped to enhance cooperation with China in the areas of trade, investment, agriculture, mining, finance and non-governmental exchanges, he added.
