Mongolians & Turks

What is the relationship between the turkish people and the mongolian people? This is a bit of an open-ended question, as I'm not sure I have enough information about this to more effectively ask the question.

I notice a strong resemblance in facial features and language sounds between my turkish friends and my mongolian friends. I am aware that the Khan invasions reached turkey. I'm interested in every and all information that shows some type of linguistic or ethnic relationship between the turks and the mongolians.
Is there actually such a relationship? Or have the years between the invasions and now wiped it all out?
