    Mongolia is between the two geopolitical giants -Russia and China. This is a rare case in the political geography of the world, given that both countries are nuclear powers, permanent members of the UN Security Council, the main political and economic players of the world, and Mongolia itself is a small country with the territory of 1.5 million square kilometers and the population of 3 million people.
    Mongolia is more known to the world its great leader Chinggis Khaan who 800 years ago established the Great Mongolian State, the largest empire ever created in the world history.
    In 1945 the Mongolian People’s Republic was not an independent state. It was legally a part of China, although the Chinese had not been able to exercise effective control over what they still termed “Outer Mongolia” since 1921.
    Mongolia’s activity during the Sino-Soviet dispute suggested that she was trying to prevent increased Russian involvement in Mongolian affairs. The meaning of "socialist competition" between the Soviet Union and China is that it promotes the development of backward Mongolia. The competition between them reached its apogee in 1956; thus, there appeared tendencies of increasing China's influence in Mongolia. But the joint statement by the Tsedenball and Bulganin, made May 15, 1957, increased the influence of the Soviet Union. The rivalry between the Soviet Union and China was expressed in the credits of gratuitous aid provided to Mongolia.
    However, with the deterioration of relations between the USSR and the PRC, the severance of diplomatic relations between them, China's relations with Mongolia were also interrupted for many years. The Sino-Soviet hostility directly influenced the Sino-Mongolian relations.
    In 1990, Mongolia free itself from the dominating Soviet influence, redefine its vital national interests and foreign policy priorities, and formulate its national security and foreign policy concepts based on its own interests. These concepts reflected in the 1992 Constitution of Mongolia and in more detail in the country's national security and foreign policy concepts.
