Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan met with Mongolian Prime Minister Norov Altankhuyag on Thursday.

Erdogan said in a joint press conference, "with the support of Turkey, Mongolia was accepted as the 57th member of Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)".

Erdogan said that Turkey`s aim was to improve the trade volume with Mongolia from 36 million USD to 250 million USD by 2015.

Erdogan noted that the relationship and cooperation between Turkey and Mongolia developed after Turkish Airlines (THY) started flights between the two countries, and added that the number of flights rose from three to seven times a week, and another aim was to hold cargo trips too.

Turkey built 400 residences in Mongolia within the scope of reconstruction of the country in the last 10 years, Erdogan reminded.
