O. Khostsetseg accompanied Ts.
Elbegdorj on a visit to the mining areas of the Gobi and saw how he was
moved by herders’ grievances. It is now for both mining and Government
officials to ensure his promises to the local people are kept.
Suddenly as President Ts. Elbegdorj
looked out, to the distant horizon, he seemed lost in his thoughts for a
while. Until then, he had been asking the MPs with him and the senior
company executives some hard, even fierce questions, but now he looked
mellowed. I could only guess that the softening came because the wide
steppe of the Gobi and the Mount Khan Javkhlant had whispered something
to him. Nature does deliversilent messages to a sympathetic human heart.
The ancient Mount Khan Javkhlant might have whispered some little word
of great value… the locals do believe that the blue sky stretched above
the Gobi desert brings wisdom and comfort to visitors.
