Ever-Widening Arc: Mongolia, Turkey United in Framework of NATO Partnership

On July 3rd, Turkey’s Daily Sabah featured an opinion piece by the Mongolian ambassador to Turkey, Ravdan Bold, entitled Mongolia, Turkey friendship toward strategic partnership.

He began his article by drawing parallels between the histories of the two countries.

In only the second sentence, however, he denounced the only two nations bordering his own – Russia and China – for, in the avatars of Czarist Russian and the Chinese Middle Kingdom, having “coerced Mongolia into autonomy status with the Treaty of Khyakta signed in 1915.”

The nation he represents has been an independent state for a century and throughout the Cold War was a close ally of Soviet Russia. Arguably the latter’s closest ally politically and geographically.

The ambassador praised Turkey for supporting his nation in the United Nations as a non-permanent Security Council member.
