Mongolia has pledged to support India's bid for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council.

The Mongolian leaders expressed their support for India's claim for permanent membership of the UNSC during their meetings with Minister of State for External Affairs, E Ahamed in Ulan Bator recently.

Ahamed was in Mongolia to attend the inauguration of the new Mongolian President, Nambaryn Enkhbayar.

During the visit, the two sides reviewed the bilateral relations and agreed to further strengthen their ties.

India has decided to further strengthen the two Indian institutes functioning in Mongolia, the Rajiv Gandhi vocational training centre and the Atal Bihari Vajpayee training centre for excellence in information technology, Ahamed, who was on a transit visit to Beijing, said.

Mongolia would like to send its diplomats to India for training at the Foreign Service Institute, which has been agreed.

Mongolia is also considering to name a road after Mahatma Gandhi, the minister said. Both sides are keen to enter into agreements in areas like agriculture development, animal husbandry, dairy and solar energy.

The Mongolian side is keen to have more high-level exchanges, especially since the year 2005 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.

The Mongolian leadership cherished the close relations between the two countries, Ahamed said.

Ahamed also had separate meetings with the Mongolian Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister.
