The visit is in keeping with the tradition of regular high level exchanges between the two countries, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).

“Salman Khurshid’s visit to Bhutan will further strengthen the excellent state of cooperation and friendship between the two countries,” BBS reports quoting a source at MoFA.

While in Bhutan, he will call on the King, Prime Minister Jigmi Y Thinley, and other ministers including his counterparts, according to the report.

“Apart from discussing matters of mutual interests and reviewing bilateral relationship with a focus on further strengthening the special friendship between the two countries, the progress of Gol funded projects in the 10th Five Year Plan and cooperation in the 11th Five Year Plan will also be discussed.”

  1. “Salman Khurshid’s visit to Bhutan will further strengthen the excellent state of cooperation and friendship between the two countries,” BBS reports quoting a source at MoFA.

    I am a bit skeptical about the words “further strengthen the excellent state of cooperation and friendship between the two countries…” If we already have that level of achievement in the field of friendship, it is necessary to work on this line instead of strengthening the already existing strength.

    This may lead to CRUSHING the bond-strength to powder, for the interest of one party/player. Who can compel to undo the works of interest to that party when that is brought about? Bhutanese are already a divided people from the time of the TSA-WA-SUM babu and Bhutanese freedom is only the game plan of the far-sighted visionary that saw problem before any thing would happen and brought problem to stop that problem… Who has BHUTAN now as stake in the game?

  2. Khurshid Sahib – socha tha aab to India ka sooch badalgayaga? lakin commitment of billions of ngultrums shows – nahin!

    We Bhutanese of Nepalese origin believe that India has so far played a villain and has been hand in gloves with the dictatorial – ethnic cleansers of Bhutan which is not only immoral but culpable.

    It is most outragious that you have given recognition to international criminals such as the previous ambassador Dago Tshering and the present one who is the abductor of Mr. T N Rizal – this is an insult not only to democracy but human dignity.

    THINGS GOT TO CHANGE NOW!!! INDIA!!!

    With utmost respect

    Sincerely yours
