Biden gets to grips with Mongolian diplomacy
Tuesday 23 August 2011
The US Vice-President Joe Biden pretends to get to grips with a Mongolian wrestler during a display in his honour in Ulan Bator.
Mr Biden also tried his hand at archery and was later presented with a horse, which will remain in Mongolia. He named it Celtic in a nod to his Irish roots.
While Mr Biden received a warm welcome, there was a small group opposed to his visit. His motorcade was greeted by protesters brandishing posters saying "Yankees keep your hands off Mongolia" and "Hi Joe, No Nuclear Waste, Go Home" after reports, that have been denied by the Mongolian government, of three-nation discussions about storing nuclear waste in the Central Asian country.
