Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. In accordance with the intergovernmental agreement of Mongolia and China on the Regime of the Mongolian-Chinese Border Crossings, the two countries agreed to have nine permanent operating auto road crossings, namely Bayankhoshuu-Uvdug, Zamyn Uud-Erlian, Khangi-Mandal, Gashuunsukhait-Gantsmod, Shiveekhuren-Sekhee, Burgastai- Laoemyao, Bulgan-Takashiken, Bichigt-Zuunkhatavch, and Khavirga-Arkhashaat. Today, seven out of nine crossings are operating normally.

As a result of working through diplomatic channels to restore freight transportation at the Bichigt-Zuunkhatavch and Khavirga-Arkhashaat road ports that were closed according to the proposal of the Chinese side due to the pandemic, the operation of Bichigt-Zuunkhatavch port, which was closed since August 22, 2021, was resumed and 200 vehicles stuck in China started being taking from July 22 this year. In addition, coal trucks will start crossing the state border, and an agreement has been reached with the Chinese side to further increase oil and other necessary export-import transportation.
