Mongolia Rejects US Military Bases

Ulan Bator, Apr 10 (Prensa Latina) Mongolia rejected the U.S. proposal to establish military bases in this Asian country in spite of an agreement to strengthen links in that sector.
U.S. Secretary of Defense Charles Hagel and his Mongol peer, Dashdemberel Bat-Erdene, signed an agreement to expand military cooperation.

The White House is trying to establish a counterweight in the region that can contain its Chinese and Russian rivals, by forging agreements with less large Asian nations, to which it offers support in matters of training and assistance.

However, Bat-Erdene ruled out the possibility of hosting U.S. facilities. "We have a law that excludes the stationing of foreign troops in our country," Bat-Erdene insisted, after signing the bilateral agreement.

Hagel's visit to Mongolia, the last stopover of his 10-day Asian tour, included visits to China and Japan.

Nine years have passed since a U.S. Secretary of Defense visited Mongolia. Donald Rumsfeld was the last to come here.
