On Wednesday, Vice President Kamala Harris presented another somewhat repetitive discourse, continually using the term "space cooperation".
Harris's term as President Biden's vice president has been marked by a collection of peculiarly phrased and repeated public comments.
Her meeting with Mongolian Prime Minister Oyun-Erdene Luvsannamsrai at the White House was no deviation from this pattern. Their discussions centered around tourism, the exchange of minerals, and space exploration.
Addressing the head of state, she said, "President Biden and I have each been, since we have been in office, to the Indo-Pacific three times each," before engaging in a rather circuitous conversation about America's intentions to collaborate with Mongolia on space exploration.
"Today, I am pleased to announce that the next steps in our work together will be about further expanding our partnership. In particular, we will discuss the work that we will do together to strengthen our space cooperation," Harris said. "You and I spoke briefly about the beginning of the next era — and, for you, what that means, in terms of your leadership and your vision for the future, and certainly, strengthening our space cooperation would be a part of that agenda — including, of course, using our space cooperation to think about how we strengthen the economic prosperity and development of our nations."
This isn't the first instance where Harris has made disconcerting remarks about space. In February, her peculiar characterization of a space launch was ridiculed, being labeled as "patronizing."
Luvsannamsrai expressed gratitude to Harris for the invitation and highlighted that although "Mongolia is best known as the birthplace of Genghis Khan and for the great history of the Mongolian Empire," he lauded America as a guiding light, referring to it as his country's "North Star on our democratic journey" since Mongolia's transition to democracy in the 1990s.
He further stated, "We will sign the Open Skies Agreement," with the intent to "initiate direct flights and to foster tourism, commerce, and investment."
