Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay met with Gonchig Gan­bold the first Am­bas­sador of the Mon­go­lian Peo­ple’s Re­pub­lic to Bhutan last Wed­nes­day in the cap­i­tal.

Ly­onch­hen high­lighted the sim­i­lar­i­ties that ex­ists be­tween the two coun­tries the Am­bas­sador said that Bhutan and Mon­go­lia said that it is not just the com­mon­al­i­ties in terms of cul­ture but also in terms of ge­og­ra­phy – both the courtiers are land­locked. And be­ing the first Am­bas­sador, he pledged to do his best to strengthen the ties be­tween the coun­tries.

Ly­onch­hen and Am­bas­sador had dis­cussed on the wide range of top­ics, some of which in­cluded dis­cus­sion on United Na­tion’s Peace Keep­ing (UNPK), Live­stock, Econ­omy, Health and Democ­racy.

Ly­onch­hen thanked the govern­ment and peo­ple of Mon­go­lia for al­low­ing Bhutanese doc­tors to un­dergo higher stud­ies in tra­di­tional medicines. As of date seven doc­tors have al­ready been trained and two doc­tors are un­der­go­ing the study pro­gram. Ly­onch­hen in­formed the Am­bas­sador that Bhutan has a unique nar­ra­tive. Our Kings forced democ­racy upon us, he said.

The Am­bas­sador in­formed Ly­onch­hen that Mon­go­lia is the high­est con­trib­u­tor to United Na­tion Peace Keep­ing (UNPK) and that they will be happy to share their lessons. Ac­cept­ing the sup­port and guid­ance Ly­onch­hen in­formed the Am­bas­sador that Bhutan is young in this area and said that more and more peo­ple need to par­tic­i­pate in UNPK to en­sure peace and rule of law. Ly­onch­hen also con­grat­u­lated Mon­go­lia for tak­ing lead­er­ship and ini­ti­at­ing Think Tank for Least De­vel­oped Coun­tries. (LDCs)
