ULAN BATOR - Mongolian Prime Minister Norov Altankhuyag met on Monday with a group of 100 children from Northeast China's Liaoning province, who visited the central Asian country at his invitation.

Altankhuyag invited the children from the flood-hit Liaoning province to visit Mongolia during his tour to China in October 2013.

During the meeting, the prime minister gave gifts to the Chinese children. "You all overcame hard time. May you feel comfortable during your stay in Mongolia and make friends with many Mongolian children," he said.

This year marks 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mongolia and China and also the year of "Mongolia-China Cultural, Arts and Humanitarian Exchange" as declared by the Mongolian government.

In the past years, children from China's disaster-hit areas of Sichuan and Hulunbuir also visited Mongolia for summer holiday at the invitation of Mongolian PMs.

The Chinese children will stay at children's summer camp "Nairamdal," about 30 km from the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator.
