Analysis, said the United States and Russia have held with the Mongolian military exercises infighting kept
Russia and Mongolia next month will hold joint military exercises in the Russian territory.the
eastern Russia Military District Director of the Service Alexander Gordeyev has said to the media, Russia and Mongolia in September will be held in the Russian Republic of Buryatia the “Bu Erdu within shooting range Code” color Selenge River -2012 “joint military exercises, participation in the exercise of about 300 Russian eastern military region soldier, 250 Mongolian soldiers and about 100 bilateral military and special equipment”.
Russia and Mongolia held regularly “selenga joint military exercises between the two countries since 2008, designed to improve the joint action of the armed forces of the two countries. Selenga -2011 “military exercises in two phases, respectively, in Russia, China and Mongolia, the theme of the anti-terrorism drill.
worth noting, held the 12th of this month, 65 kilometers west of the Mongolian capital, Ulan Bator, the Mongolian armed forces training center called “Khan explore -2012 multinational peacekeeping and military exercises . More than 1,000 soldiers from Mongolia, the United States, the United Kingdom, India, Korea, Japan, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Singapore and New Zealand and other countries involved in the 12-day exercise, China and Russia to send observers to participate.
Mongolia and the United States in 2003, held a the Khaan Quest bilateral peacekeeping exercise. The Khaan Quest gradually evolved since 2006, as a multinational peacekeeping exercise.
side of the exercise is not over yet, there has begun to announce another held time. Which is not difficult to see competition means.
In fact, both Russia and Mongolia joint military exercises, or the United States and Mongolia-led multinational military exercises itself scale are smaller, more single participating weaponry, mostly peacekeeping, anti-terrorism nature. In addition to the Mongolia army strength limit of reasons, but the main reason is Russia, the United States and other countries are not valued military exercises, but a form of exchange in the military field.
as a pure landlocked country, Mongolia is sandwiched between China, Russia two great countries, has been pursuing a “third neighbors” foreign policy, advocates “multi-pivot, equidistant from the Non-Aligned” balanced diplomacy . The United States, Japan, South Korea, India and the EU countries are the object of its “third neighbors” policy. Mongolia is also on the SCO observer states, the NATO “Partnership for Peace”, CSTO Asian partner countries.
Mongolia “third neighbors” needs its unique geo-strategic position, it an important role in the new U.S. strategy in Asia. In recent years, the United States has gradually stepped up efforts to win over Mongolia: first playing a democratic model in Asia (Mongolia is a member of the “Community of Democracies” led by the United States and Western countries, and is served by the Presidency), and subsequently given the identity of the NATO “Partnership for Peace”. Mongolia this year is likely to formally join the CSTO. These phenomena has long aroused the vigilance of the Russian side.
and Mongolia to hold joint military exercises, can be seen as both China and Russia, and the United States in the military field, wrestling, infighting in the political, economic and cultural fields are also always makes. The two parties who gained the upper hand in Mongolia, Mongolia will benefit. From this perspective, the policy of Mongolia’s “third neighbors” is undoubtedly a success. (Reporter late Hino)
