Uruguay is planning to open a consulate general in Mongolia soon in a bid to promote bilateral ties, especially tourism exchanges, the Mongolian Foreign Ministry announced Saturday.

Mongolia and Uruguay agreed to enhance bilateral ties and cooperation in a wide range of areas, including trade, economy, tourism and agriculture, the foreign ministry said.

The agreement was reached on Friday between State Secretary of the Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Damdinsuren Davaasuren, and a visiting Uruguayan delegation led by Fernando Cabral, head of the International Economic Cooperation Department at Uruguay's Foreign Ministry.

Cabral said that Uruguay would like to enhance cooperation with Mongolia in various fields, especially in economy and tourism.

Mongolia and Uruguay established diplomatic ties in October 1997. Except for the embassy in Ulan Bator, there is no consulate of Uruguay in the Asian country yet.

The two countries signed a visa-free agreement in April allowing for 30-day visa-free travel for visitors from each other's countries, which came into force on June 1.
