Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarked on a two-day State visit to Bhutan, aimed at strengthening India’s special ties with the Himalayan nation in line with the country’s ‘Neighbourhood First’ Policy.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi received a warm welcome from Bhutan’s Prime Minister, Tshering Tobgay, upon his arrival at Paro airport, where he was also honored with a ceremonial reception.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) stated in a release on Friday that the visit is consistent with the history of frequent high-level meetings between India and Bhutan and the government’s emphasis on its Neighbourhood First Policy.

The prime minister of Bhutan wrote in Hindi on X(Twitter), saying, Bhutan mein aapka swagat hai mere bade bhai @narendramodi Ji.”

Previously, PM Modi shared on X(Twitter)regarding his visit to Bhutan.

While en route to Bhutan, I am scheduled to participate in several initiatives aimed at strengthening the partnership between India and Bhutan. I eagerly anticipate discussions with His Majesty the King of Bhutan, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo, and Prime Minister @tsheringtobgay, he stated on X(Twitter).

The visit, originally planned for March 21 and 22, had to be postponed due to adverse weather conditions in Bhutan.

During the visit, Prime Minister Modi will meet with both Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the King of Bhutan, and Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth King of Bhutan. Additionally, he will engage in discussions with the Prime Minister of Bhutan.

The statement stressed that India and Bhutan maintain a unique and lasting partnership, built on mutual trust, understanding, and goodwill.

The shared spiritual heritage and close people-to-people connections contribute richness and vitality to our exceptional relationship,” stated the MEA.

PM Modi will additionally inaugurate the Gyaltsuen Jetsun Pema Mother and Child Hospital in Thimphu, a cutting-edge medical facility constructed with support from the Government of India.

Last week, Bhutanese Prime Minister Tobgay undertook a five-day visit to India, marking his maiden foreign trip since assuming office in January.
