Mon­go­lia-China bor­der check­points to close on Novem­ber 19

The UB Post - - DOMESTIC -

Mon­go­lia-China bor­der check­points will close on Novem­ber 19 to mark the 855th an­niver­sary of Ching­gis Khaan’s birth, also known as Mon­go­lian Pride Day, in con­form­ity with the Mon­go­lia-China Bor­der Check­points and Pro­ce­dures.

The re­stric­tion is spec­i­fied in Ar­ti­cle 4.3 in the 2004 bi­lat­eral agree­ment on Mon­go­lia-China Bor­der Check­points and Pro­ce­dures. Rail­ways and air­ports will fol­low their usual sched­ules since the re­stric­tion does not ap­ply to them, which means that lo­cals and for­eign­ers can travel be­tween Mon­go­lia and China through rail­ways or plane dur­ing the na­tional hol­i­day. Check­points will re­turn to reg­u­lar op­er­a­tion on the fol­low­ing day. Since 2012, the birth­day of Ching­gis Khaan, the founder of the Mon­gol Em­pire, has been cel­e­brated on the first day of the first win­ter month ac­cord­ing to the lu­nar cal­en­dar, so it has no fixed date, but is usu­ally in early Novem­ber. This day ex­presses a sym­bolic birth­day of Ching­gis Khaan as his ex­act date of birth is not found.

Var­i­ous cel­e­bra­tory mea­sures will be or­ga­nized at Sukhbaatar Square on this day.
