Israel and Mongolia on Tuesday signed an agreement to promote desert tourism to each other's countries. The initiative was born when Mongolian President Nambaryn Enkhbayar visited Israel in 2008 to attend a conference hosted by Israeli President Shimon Peres.
Tourism officials noted that both Israel and Mongolia have rich and fascinating desert regions that would be of interest to visitors from the respective countries.
A broader agreement between the two nations included postal distribution and an exchange of professional know-how.
