ULAN BATOR, April 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Mongolian representatives concluded here Tuesday a meeting aimed at strengthening bilateral cooperation in protecting intangible cultural heritage.

During the meeting, which opened Monday, the two sides reviewed the achievements made so far in this regard and discussed future cooperation programs.

The two neighboring countries share a rich diversity of intangible cultural heritages, and have maintained good long-term cooperation in protecting them.

China and Mongolia are both state parties to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage, a treaty adopted in 2003 at a general conference of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Thanking to joint efforts by China and Mongolia, traditional Mongolian long song was recognized by UNESCO as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2005.
