Mongolia is between Russia and China. Why are we getting involve?

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

Because they don't want to deal with either

Mongolia should be futuristic city, no natural disaster there. If only Mongolia gives half part of its' land to Japan....

While helping others is definitely noteworthy, Japan should also do more for its own population!

You’ve already indirectly answered yourself.

Hold up, where’s the help on the domestic front? Last year, at least Abe no mask realized this and paid everyone ¥100k, before suga(the imbecile) gives away money or vaccines, he should help people in this country.

a Japanese government project intended to ensure every country gets vaccinated.

Japan could do with a project like that.

Wait a minute. Shouldn't we first accelerate vaccination and provide conditions so that vaccination can be accelerated, then stop buying vaccines and immediately donate them to a foreign country? And only then give aid to Mongolia, which is not even our neighbour? I mean, Japan has more problems of its own and should deal with its citizens and residents first, rather than playing savior somewhere else and pretending everything is fine at home?

Outside image trumps all.

It is called aid but in effect it is indirectly giving taxpayer money to an LDP support company to supply the equipment at marked up price.

Mongolia is looking to democratic nations for support. China is suppressing their Mongolian population in Inner Mongolia angering the nation of Mongolia. They don't like China much but are forced to deal with them. The roughly $8 million is chump change in the Japanese budget but it buys goodwill and influence in a strategically located nation.
