Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. On December 14, B. Munkhjin, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, reported that the operation to import goods and products from Erlian border checkpoint of China is being caried out in phases.

From December 10, 150 vehicles that had been stuck at the Erlian checkpoint for 60 days have begun to be moved to the middle zone at the borders between the two countries. Although more than 50 vehicles crossed the border last Saturday and Sunday, the movement stopped on Sunday.
