Aiming to further cement the relationship, Indian PM Narendra Modi commenced his Bhutan visit on Friday.

Modi said he is looking forward to his meeting with Bhutanese leaders including King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck

The Indian PM posted on X: "On the way to Bhutan, where I will be attending various programmes aimed at further cementing the India-Bhutan partnership. I look forward to talks with Majesty the King of Bhutan, His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo and Prime Minister
@tsheringtobgay."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Bhutan was postponed "due to ongoing inclement weather conditions over Paro airport", the foreign office said Wednesday (March 20, 2024).

"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.

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.
