During a meeting at the White House with Mongolia’s Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene Luvsannamsrai, Vice President Kamala Harris drew attention to the significance of collaboration in space exploration. The discussions covered several topics, including tourism, mineral trade, and space cooperation.
Notable Emphasis on Space Cooperation
Vice President Harris has previously faced criticism for delivering statements that are circular and strangely worded in public. However, in this particular instance, while discussing America’s plans for space exploration with Mongolia, Harris stressed the importance of “strengthening our space cooperation” multiple times.
Strengthening the Partnership
Harris expressed the intention to enhance the partnership between the two nations by placing a strong emphasis on bolstering space cooperation. She highlighted how this collaboration could contribute to economic prosperity and development for both countries.
Recognition of the Relationship
Prime Minister Luvsannamsrai conveyed his gratitude for the warm welcome from Harris and praised the United States as Mongolia’s guiding light on their democratic journey. He underscored the significance of signing the Open Skies Agreement, which aims to facilitate direct flights and promote tourism, trade, business, and investment.
While Harris’s recent public statements, including those related to space, have been scrutinized for their peculiar phrasing, the meeting with the Mongolian leader also underscored the importance of fostering international partnerships and cooperation in the field of space exploration.
