The chief justice of China's highest court on Tuesday ended a visit to Mongolia that included meetings with the country's leading legal officials.
Wang Shengjun, chief justice of the Supreme People's Court of China, met with Mongolian Chief Justice Sodnomdarjaa Batdelger, and Jamsran Byambadorj, chairman of the Constitutional Court of Mongolia.
During his meeting with Batdelger, Wang said judicial exchanges and cooperation between China and Mongolia have yielded fruitful results in a number of fields, including judicial training.
He said China's National Judges College has trained 75 Mongolian judges in three training sessions since 2007.
Batdelger, meanwhile, said he appreciated the efforts China's court has made in promoting judicial exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.
Wang said during his meeting with Byambadorj that this year marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of Sino-Mongolian diplomatic relations. He said the past six decades have witnessed rapid and sound development in bilateral ties and traditional friendship between the two countries.
China and Mongolia have signed numerous cooperation treaties in political, economic and cultural fields, Wang noted. He said the two countries staunchly support each other on major issues of common concern and have become good neighbors, friends and partners.
Byambadorj offered his congratulations on the 60th anniversary of the People's Republic of China. He also said Wang's visit was important in promoting judicial exchanges and cooperation between the two countries.
Closer contacts on judicial and legal affairs are conducive to the ongoing development of friendly ties between Mongolia and China, Byambadorj said.
