AIR
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that India-Bhutan partnership today is of a special character and substance and forms an important pillar of Government of India’s Neighbourhood First policy.

In his departure statement, Prime Minister said, his visit to Bhutan in the beginning of the current term reflects the high importance that the Government attaches to India’s relations with that country which is a trusted friend and neighbour.


Mr Modi expressed confidence that his visit will promote India's time-tested and valued friendship with Bhutan and consolidate it further for the prosperous future and progress of the people of both the countries.

He said, the two countries enjoy excellent bilateral ties exemplified by our extensive development partnership, mutually beneficial hydro-power co-operation and strong trade and economic linkages.

Mr Modi said, these are, reinforced by a shared spiritual heritage and robust people-to-people ties. He said, both countries jointly celebrated the Golden Jubilee of the establishment of formal diplomatic relations last year.

Mr Modi said, he looks forward to having fruitful discussions with the King, the Fourth Druk Gyalpo and the Prime Minister of Bhutan on the entire gamut of our bilateral relations.

He said, he also looks forward to addressing young Bhutanese students at the prestigious Royal University of Bhutan. Mr Modi will be on a two-day visit to Bhutan beginning tomorrow.
