Won't You Be My Neighbor?

China and Mongolia have finally agreed upon a mutually-acceptable border and each other's full independence. Something tells me that it wasn't Mongolia that was slowing things down on the mutual-recognition bit. Anyway, how very neighborly of China. It would make Mr. Rogers proud.

Actually, the first Sino-Mongolian border agreement dates back to 1962. I think it was somehow abrogated by the chinese site during the late 60s and re-affirmed in 1988. There is a detailed text somewhere on the web, but I can't find it (maybe a search for the name of the site of the 1948 border clashes in the Altai region would help, but I can't remember it at the moment). Of course, agreeing again, and probably on more details, can't hurt. Saying that China respects Mongolia's independence, as well as the way of development chosen by the Mongolian people, seems to be pretty standard for Chinese politicians. Mongolia usually returns the favour with support of Beijing's One-China-policy.
