Mongolia, just after it finally gained political independence in 1990, inserted a “third neighbor” concept in its foreign policy for definite reasons. Meaning of the concept exceeds even beyond “free and liberal relations with world community”. It aims at bringing economic-political interests of US, Canada, UK and other powerful western European countries in Mongolia
Rumors and slogans about China’s threat to Mongolia’s independence and their invasion are nothing new. History proves that one of our neighbors used others to install fear and threat to establish full political control over Mongolia.
