• [Bhutan] ‘Reports that China-Bhutan ties worries India are nonsense’

    Referring to visits in the past few months by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee, Bhutan’s Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay said India-Bhutan relations had reached an “unprecedented level of cooperation and understanding.”

    In an exclusive interview to The Hindu, Mr. Tobgay denied speculation that the high-level visits were tied to India’s worries over Bhutan-China relations. “There is a theory that India’s leaders are visiting Bhutan in quick succession, and Mr. Modi made Bhutan his maiden foreign visit destination because the government is concerned about Bhutan’s security. Our friendship is deep and this is a celebration of it. The rest are nonsense theories,” Mr. Tobgay said.
