Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay will arrive in Delhi on Thursday on a three-day visit during which both sides are expected to deliberate on a range of issues including defence, security and strategic cooperation.
Announcing Tobgay's visit, the Ministry of External Affairs said his visit will provide an opportunity to advance the "exemplary ties of friendship" between the two countries.
Tobgay will hold wide-ranging talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and call on President Ram Nath Kovind.
In their talks, Modi and Tobgay are expected to deliberate on the situation in Doklam tri-junction, the site of a 73-day-long standoff between Indian and Chinese armies last year.
This year, both the countries are commemorating the golden jubilee of the establishment of formal diplomatic relations.
"The upcoming visit of Prime Minister Tobgay, during the Golden Jubilee year, will provide an opportunity to both the sides to hold discussions on issues of mutual interest, and advancing the exemplary ties of friendship for the benefit of the two peoples," the MEA said. PTI
