SPEECH BY THE PRESIDENT OF MONGOLIA HIS EXCELLENCY MR.TSAKHIAGIIN ELBEGDORJ AT THE CLOSING OF THE NATIONAL FESTIVITY NAADAM



My dear fellow countrymen,
Dear guests,
In these beautiful summer days of sun, rain and bloom, the Mongol people have proudly and blissfully celebrated our great national festivity, the Naadam.
Our wrestlers were strong and deft. The cheer of our children riding our fast horses was lively, and our horses, were tended masterfully to attain great speed. Our archers were accurate and precise. The great national Naadam incited the vigor and pride of the Mongol people for it is the very essence of Mongol culture. It is the mirror of Mongol history, of Mongol mind, of Mongol identity.

We Mongolians foster a dear goal, firm resolve and genuine verve to consolidate our past with solid achievements of the present and harness our prosperous future. Cherishing our independence and freedom, honoring harmony and justice, cognizant of duty and accountability, and aware of the historic importance of the time we live in for the development of our country, let us, the Mongolians, do our best in all our fair efforts and aspirations.

From the high rostrum of the great Mongol Festivity, looking forward to the next year’s celebration, I announce the Naadam 2014 closed.

May every Mongolian enjoy a sound health, clever mind, seasoned education and a joyful spirit.

May the Eternal Blue Sky Grace You all.
