In 2015, after being appointed as the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi had visited Mongolia to strengthen the relationship between the two countries, and his visit marked the first ever visit of an Indian Prime Minister to Mongolia. After the PM’s visit the Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had also visited Mongolia in April this year, where she discussed the economic cooperation in infrastructure development, information technology services and energy sources with the Mongolian minister.
