PM Modi's Bhutan visit postponed due to inclement weather

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Bhutan has been postponed "due to ongoing inclement weather conditions over Paro airport", the foreign office said Wednesday.

"Due to ongoing inclement weather conditions over Paro airport, it has been mutually decided to postpone the state visit of the Prime Minister to Bhutan on 21-22 March 2024. The new dates are being worked out by the two sides through diplomatic channels," the statement said a day before the scheduled visit.

PM Modi was scheduled to visit the Himalayan nation for a state visit on Thursday and Friday.

"The visit was in keeping with the tradition of regular high-level exchanges between India and Bhutan and the government's emphasis on its Neighbourhood First Policy," a press release said.

Ahead of the PM's visit, massive posters have been put up along the mountain roads in Bhutan to welcome him to the country.

Bhutan's PM Tshering Tobgay was on a five-day visit to India last week, which was his first foreign trip after taking charge of the top office in January.

During the visit, PM Tobgay met Modi and President Droupadi Murmu.
