The 19th Conference of Mongolia-Russian joint commission to cooperate in the archive sector started in Ulaanbaatar on October 3, 2011.
The opening ceremony of the unique rare archival documents and photo exhibition themed “Mongolia-Russian relation in XX century”, dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations
between Mongolia and Russian Governments, and the 100th anniversary of the establishment of Mongolian modern diplomatic service, has been held today in the Nomin hall of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Mongolia.
The bilateral relations between Mongolia and the Russian Federation have been traditionally strong since the Communist era, when Soviet Russia was the closest ally of the Mongolian People's Republic (former name). Russia has an embassy in Ulaanbaatar and two consulate generals (in Darkhan
cities). Mongolia has an embassy
in Moscow, three consulate generals (in Irkutsk, Kyzyl and Ulan Ude), and a branch in Yekaterinburg.
