With China having been 90% of Mongolia's foreign trade volume for more than two decades, Xi's visit to Mongolia to show his respect and friendship with the Mongolian people and government would be the most natural act one could have expected, but as Xi said in his speech to the Mongolian parliament, and in his penned article in the Monglian press, his trip to Mongolia meant much, much more than a mere acknowledgement of such heart-warmng statistics.  To him, it was a journey to visit his relatives, his family, and his friends.  And, watching Xi smile every step of the way, every moment he was in Mongolia, you know what his mouth spoke, his heart also felt.

Indeed, China and Mongolia are historically intertwined at several junctures, foremost being what once appeared as a foreign invasion of China by Mongolia, then under Kublai Khan, who was responsible for making Beijing the capital of the China he conquered.  Eventually, with the passage of time, the master-servant relationship slowly evolved into that of relatives and friends.  Politically, Xi respects Mongolia as a separate and independent sovereign country, sacrosanct in its territorial integrity, for which he rightly pledged China's complete respect and observance.  Whatever Mongolia wants to do inside its borders, Xi promised China will never interfere with either.  

But beyond respect, Xi expressed on behalf of the 1.3 billion peace-loving people of China, his love for Mongolia as a kin, as a friend, and as a neighbor.  This investment of his precious time in meeting with the leaders and the citizens of Mongolia may prove to be China's best investment, because a good neighbor, as the proverb goes, is even more important than a relative, in times of need.  As the world faces global ecological changes and economic turbulence, Mongolia stands as China's buffer against future shortages of water, timber and mineral resources, while Chna stands as Mongolia's buffer against predatory and prejudicial trade and tariffs, manipulations of credit and currency, and all the many means by which the advanced economies take advantage of the less developed countries.  Xi's offer for Mongolia to board China's train of development is not empty rhetoric, it is Mongolia's certified Class A ticket to a bright future of peace and endless prosperity.

AND THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH . . .

The blood, cultural, and economic ties beween Mongolia and China, as well as between Mongolia and Russia, promise that Mongolia will prosper in peace by simply staying independent, not just of its big neighbors, none of whom have any ambitions to invade it, as either could have at any time in the past, but also of its suitors from other parts of the world, who carry the political baggage in their deals with Mongolia, that their government and their economy must be re-structured in such a way that such countries can dictate regime change any time they want through the facade of democratic elections, knowing full well that even in the so-called "democratic elections" in such distant countries, that candidates are nominated by powerful interest groups and wealthy donors, who thus have the unconstitutional privilege of screening the candidates for obedience even before the public gets to vote for them.  The process of nomination, euphemistically called "primaries", serves not to promote the names of those who could serve their country best, but to weed out those who serve their donors least.  The second sieve of the actual elections often pits candidates who have been certified to be non-threats and therefore unofficial servants of their foreign backers, against each other, to determine which of them would bring them the thickest and juiciest bacon.   With such a model of colonization of developing countries through fundamentally flawed elections, it is no wonder that most developing countries cannot progress, as the wealth of their nation continues to flow out to the countries backing their government.

The present government of Mongolia stands out as an exception to the rule of puppet governments whose strings are being pulled, day in and day out, by foreigners.  It was elected by an overwhelming majority of the voters, notwithstanding the opposition of foreign powers, and sought out China on its own, without any backroom deals to exploit their country for the benefit of any special interest.  China's even-handed policy in Mongolia, not interfering in its domestic politics, letting the Mongolian people learn from their own past experiences how best they should be governed, which party should be in power, and what economic or social programs they should promote, has loosened the political and economic chains heretofore binding down this great people.  China can treat Mongolia differently than than the West for the simple reason that Xi proudly professed in his visit.  China regards Mongolia as first of all, kin, with blood ties streaming across generations between Mongolians and Chinese for more than a thousand years, as many Beijingers themselves have Mongolian blood in their veins.  Beijing itself was the capital of the Mongolian empire under Kublai Khan - how much closer can two countries be?  The enmity of a thousand years past has mellowed into the wine of true friendship in the 21st century.  Kinship and friendship are both made ten times more relevant to both countries by the largesse of nature and history in making these relatives and friends also next-door neighbors which facilitates their exchanges of goods, services and tourists.  Who would not want their kindly relatives and friends to be their next door neighbors?

This is the great strategic wisdom of Xi as he visits Mongolia.  It is not just a flash of brilliant intellectual insight.  It is a transcendent and profound spiritual wisdom to see in a country a whole world unfold.  Being friends with its other great neighbor, Russia, China has no ambitions to turn Mongolia into a political tug-of-war with Russia either.  Why should they?  They are all friends after all.  China herself has a large Russian-blooded ethnic community in its northern tier of provinces.  Surely, three friends are better than two in defending, helping, and entertaining each other in the many centuries to come, as this visit by Xi will be remembered for, by generations hence.  In fact, Xi's approach to Mongolia reminds one of the great unification of the northern tribes by the diplomat and leader par excellence, Genghis Khan, who made the once ignored and disdained nomadic tribes of Mongolia, the ruler of the greatest empire the world has ever seen.  But this time, the scope of the unification is even bigger, as the SCO evolves into a commonwealth of nations that own, defend, and develop what the British jealously and accurately described as the "Pivot of Human History".  This is the MIDDLE EARTH of Tolkien, and to its peaceful people, to them, to the meek, belongs the inheritance of the Earth.

In return.  China should send Mongolia a million 1,000,000 mangoes which are the mongolians' favor ...

Chinese mangoes from Hainan are some of the best in the world.

Mongolia shook off foreign dictatorship only two decades ago when the Russians finnaly gave in to  ...

Mongolia will have a score to settle with the Westerners, especially of Canada, for the genocide against Native Americans who historically emigrated from Siberia and modern day Mongolia across land bridges to the North American continent.  Mongolia is a great nation.  We recognize that, we respect that, and we love that.  A strong and prosperous Mongolia on the borders of China is a great strategic asset for China as it is a source of stability, peace and prosperity, that is practically inexhaustible.  

China and Mongolia are kins, friends, and neighbors - that is the way it is and should always be.
