Mongolia says reports of Lithuania imposing sanctions against Mongolia untrue www.xinhuanet.com
ULAN BATOR, Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- The Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Thursday said the reports of Lithuania imposing sanctions against Mongolia are misinformation.
Reports alleged that Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite signed a bill to impose sanctions against Mongolia on Monday.
This information was also denied by the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, which emphasized that Lithuania and Mongolia are developing constructive bilateral relations and actively cooperating in multilateral formats, as well as gradually expanding economic cooperation.
This is not the first time that such anti-Lithuanian and third-party aggressive informational actions are aimed at compromising Lithuania in the international space, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry said.
Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on Dec. 11, 1991.
