China's Foreign minister Wang Yi is due to visit Mongolian officials in Ulaanbaatar on Tuesday, September 15, and Wednesday, September 16. Wang will discuss the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, trade and economic matters, and regional cooperation. Although full details regarding the visit have not been confirmed, Wang will meet with President Khaltmaaglin Battulga, Prime Minister Ukhnaagiin Khurlsukh, and Foreign Minister Nyamtseren Enkhtaivan. Meetings are likely to take place at the State Great Khural.
An increased security presence is likely throughout the capital during Wang's visit, especially around Chinggis Khaan International Airport (ULN), the State Great Khural, and additional locations where events are taking place related to the visit. Periodic roadblocks to allow for VIP cavalcades and additional checkpoints may lead to overland travel disruptions over the coming days.
Individuals in Ulaanbaatar are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence, remain vigilant, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
