Mongolia has resumed coal exports to China, the country’s Finance Minister Chimed Khurelbaatar said here on Monday.
The resumption started on Monday via Gashuun Sukhait border port after the Mongolian government lifted a ban that was imposed in February to curb the spread of COVID-19.
“Our country has resumed coal exports to China via the border point of Gashuun Sukhait. We hope that that coal exports to China will be fully recovered soon,” said Khurelbaatar.
Coal transport trucks will be disinfected and drivers will wear protective suits.
As of Monday, a total of 10 people, nine Mongolian citizens and a French national, tested positive for COVID-19 in Mongolia and their conditions remain stable, according to the country’s National Center for Communicable Disease.
