It's been announced that Mongolian Foreign Minister Tsend Munkh-Orgil is to pay an official visit to China from this Sunday.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said that the Mongolian minister will hold talks with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on cementing mutual trust, deepening cooperation and expanding people-to-people exchanges.
Geng Shuang said Munkh-Orgil would also meet Chinese leaders during his three-day visit.
Relations between the two sides became strained following a visit by the Dalai Lama in November.
Beijing has urged the Mongolian side to learn lessons after the latter promised not to allow the Dalai Lama to visit the landlocked country again.
The Dalai Lama is a political exile with ambitions to split Tibet from Chinese territory.
