Establishing Diplomatic Relations

(p.17) Chapter 2 Establishing Diplomatic Relations
Mongolia and the United States

Jonathan S. Addleton

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter recounts early diplomatic contacts between the United States and Mongolia following Mongolia's own reassertion of independence in the early 1900s, when its new leaders actively sought American support. Several American diplomats endorsed this effort and the United States briefly opened a consulate in Kalgan in Inner Mongolia, initially headed by the American diplomat Samuel Sokobin. However, hoped-for steps for more formal relations were delayed as Mongolia fell within the Soviet sphere of influence and remained there throughout the Cold War period. Mutual recognition finally came in January 1987, followed by the opening of new embassies in both Washington and Ulaanbaatar.
