President of Mongolia Battulga Khaltmaa has made a phone call to President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.

Mr Battulga congratulated Ilham Aliyev on his victory in the presidential election, and wished him success in his presidential activities towards ensuring the well-being of the people and state of Azerbaijan.

Mr Aliyev thanked President Battulga for congratulations. The heads of state expressed confidence that relations between the two countries will continue to strengthen.

Aliyev brought forward the date of the vote to April 11 from October 17, a move his allies said was necessary to avoid presidential and parliamentary elections clashing in 2025. He won 86.09 percent of votes, according to the Central Election Commission, at a turnout of about 75 percent.

In March, Mongolia expressed its willingness to increase cooperation with Azerbaijan in fields such as trade and economy, culture, education, science and sport. Mongolia and Azerbaijan established diplomatic ties on April 16, 1992.
