PM Narendra Modi conferred Bhutan’s highest honour

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was conferred with Bhutan’s highest honour, the Order of the Druk Gyalpo, by Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck on Friday. 

Earlier, PM Modi, who is on a two-day state visit to the Himalayan country, called on King Wangchuck at the Tashichho Dzong Palace in Thimphu. He also attended a cultural programme at the Tendrelthang Festival Ground alongside King Wangchuck.

India and Bhutan share a unique and exemplary bilateral relationship built on mutual trust, goodwill, and understanding.

Formal diplomatic ties between the two countries were established in 1968, with the cornerstone being the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation signed in 1949 and subsequently renewed in February 2007.
