An official team will be off to Bhutan on Friday to set up the visit and work out the logistics, reported Times of India (ToI), Thursday.

According to the report, the decision was taken over the past few days during which Modi’s tour calendar was being finalized. The discussion also touched choices among Nepal, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

The any government unit from Bhutan has reported about Modi’s visit as of now.
