ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT OF MONGOLIA AT THE CLOSING CEREMONY OF THE NAADAM FESTIVITY



Dear Naadam participants,
Distinguished guests,

The auspicious festival of Mongol Naadam is now coming close to an end in Mongolia which has a great history in the vast territory from sunrise to sunset. Our wrestlers were strong and agile, our race horses were fast and our archers’ aiming was sharp.

The Mongol Naadam sounded the cheers of Mongol knights and horse gallop, recalling the millennia-old history and culture, respecting the independence and freedom, protecting the nationality and language and encouraged us to create more. Mongolians have history to take pride in and a great future to create.

Let us strive to develop our country respecting solidarity and justice, perceiving freedom and accountability. Nationalism, creativity and effort will bring wellbeing to Mongolia.

Autumn begins after the Naadam. I would like to remind everyone to pay attention to organizing work and vacation appropriately to face challenges and difficulties upcoming winter. We will overcome those challenges - winter cold and spring wind through the hard-work in this fall.

I wish my fellow Mongolians to be healthy, intelligent, knowledgeable and vigorous and wish prosperity to my country. And I pronounce this year’s National Naadam Festivity concluded.

May the State of Mongolia be stable and the destiny of my fellow citizens be auspicious.

July 12, 2015.
