First time in 30 years that a head of state arrives on official visit by train

Prague, Jan. 18 (ČTK) — President of Mongolia Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj arrived in Prague by a regular EuroCity train from Berlin for a three-day official visit before 7:30 p.m. today, and he was welcomed by representatives of the Presidential Office, the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Mongolian Embassy at the main station.
Elbegdorj traveled in a first-class car, immediately behind the engine car, that was designated for him. The train stopped at the first platform, and his car was exactly opposite the government lounge.
After the arrival, Elbegdorj was welcomed by Presidential Office protocol section head Jindřich Forejt aboard the train.
A red carpet was spread out on the platform, where Presidential Office head Vratislav Mynář and the president's spokesman Jiří Ovčáček met Elbegdorj. Then the delegation went to the government lounge that was protected by soldiers from the Prague Castle Guard.
Foreign representatives usually fly to the Czech Republic, and an official welcome ceremony takes place at the government airport terminal.
The last time a foreign head of state arrived in Prague by train for an official visit was some 30 years ago.
Elbegdorj will meet his Czech counterpart Miloš Zeman, Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka and the heads of the lower and upper houses of parliament. They will likely discuss economic affairs and water resources.
On Tuesday, Elbegdorj is to visit Charles University in Prague and meet students of Mongolian Studies.
Elbegdorj is accompanied by a large delegation, including Mongolian Foreign Minister Lundeg Purevsuren. Deputy Foreign Minister Martin Tlapa will meet the delegation on behalf of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
