King appoints envoys


King Jigme Khesar Wangchuk has promoted three senior government officials to the post of ambassadors on Friday.

The newly appointed envoys included Daw Penjore to United Nations in Geneva, Sonam Tshong to Belgium and Kesanf Wangdi to Thailand.

Penjore was serving as a Foreign Secretary, Tshong at SAARC and Wangi at Ministry of Tourism.


  1. This news clearly reflect that Bhutan is still under absolute monarch. Why king need to appoint foreign ambassador, if there is full fledge democracy?

    Democracy and Gross National Happiness are all drama! Wangchucks are still paying game with innocent people.
