WASHINGTON — Prior to Mongolian Foreign Minister Batbold Sukhbaatar's meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Hudson Institute will host a forum on June 8 for his presentation on Mongolia's evolving relations with China and Russia, and its "third neighbor" relations with the U.S. and Japan.
Once a nation as isolated as North Korea, today Mongolia has democracy, a market economy, and a rising international profile, in part thanks to an active third neighbor policy that seeks to broaden international ties to Western democracies.
In 2005, President George W. Bush became the first American president to visit Mongolia. Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin, just concluded a visit to Mongolia — a country many Russians still view as a part of their sphere of influence — to sign numerous trade, investment, and energy agreements.
