Dr. Subrah­manyam Jais­hankar, the For­eign Sec­re­tary of In­dia was on an of­fi­cial visit to Bhutan from 2-5 Oc­to­ber 2017 on the in­vi­ta­tion from the gov­ern­ment. The For­eign Sec­re­tary was ac­com­pa­nied Mrs. Kyoko Jais­hankar and Sud­hakar Dalela, Joint Sec­re­tary (North), Min­istry of Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs of the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia.

Dur­ing the visit, Dr. Jais­hankar re­ceived au­di­ence with His Majesty The King, His Majesty The Forth Druk Gyalpo and called on Dasho Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay, Prime Min­is­ter, Ly­onpo Dam­cho Dorji, For­eign Min­is­ter and other se­nior gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials.

The of­fi­cial en­gage­ments in­clude dis­cus­sions on the over­all bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion, re­view of the on­go­ing 11th Plan and ex­change of views on the com­mem­o­ra­tion of the 50th An­niver­sary of di­plo­matic re­la­tions be­tween In­dia and Bhutan in 2018. The year 2018 will mark the com­ple­tion of 50 years since the es­tab­lish­ment of for­mal di­plo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries in 1968 dur­ing which bi­lat­eral re­la­tions grew from strength to strength.

The visit re­in­forces the tra­di­tion of reg­u­lar high­level ex­changes be­tween the two coun­tries and up­holds and strength­ens the spe­cial and ex­cep­tional age-old friend­ship be­tween Bhutan and In­dia.
