BEIJING, April 21 -- Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan on Tuesday met with Commander of Chilean Air Force Jorge Robles and Commander of General Purpose Troops of Mongolia Radnaabazar Sukhbat.
Chang lauded the rapid growth of China-Chile relations since 2012, particularly between the two militaries.
The Chinese military would like to work more broadly with the Chilean military, Chang said.
Meeting the Mongolian military leader, Chang reviewed Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to Mongolia last August, saying that presidents' consensus has set a direction for bilateral relations.
Chang called for the two militaries to maintain exchanges between high-ranking officers, continue defense security consultation and expand joint drills.
Radnaabazar Sukhbat said Mongolia would like to work more closely with China in peacekeeping missions, anti-terror operations, joint drills and training.
