Thimphu, 22nd March. 
A group of Bhutanese youngsters showcased their cultural vibrancy by performing Garba, a traditional Indian dance, to welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi to their country on Friday.

PM Modi embarked on a two-day State visit to Bhutan, aimed at strengthening India’s unique relations with the Himalayan nation under its ‘Neighbourhood First’ Policy.

During his visit, PM Modi received a special welcome as Bhutanese youth performed Garba to a song written by him. The Prime Minister watched their performance with keen interest and applauded them at its conclusion. Upon his arrival at Paro airport, PM Modi was greeted with a red-carpet welcome.

Tshering Tobgay, the Prime Minister of Bhutan, extended a warm reception to PM Modi at Paro airport, followed by a ceremonial welcome. The entire 45-kilometer route from Paro International Airport to Thimphu was lined with Bhutanese citizens, expressing their warm regards, while Indian and Bhutanese flags adorned the route.

Expressing his sentiments on social media platform X, Prime Minister Tobgay wrote in Hindi: “Bhutan mein aapka swagat hai mere bade bhai @narendramodi Ji.” PM Modi, earlier, had shared his excitement about the visit on X.

In preparation for PM Modi’s arrival, the capital city of Bhutan was adorned with huge banners to extend a grand welcome to the Indian Prime Minister.

The visit serves as an opportunity for both nations to engage in discussions on bilateral and regional interests, and to strengthen their longstanding partnership for the mutual benefit of their people. The Ministry of External Affairs highlighted the enduring and unique partnership between India and Bhutan, rooted in trust, understanding, and goodwill.

Diplomatic ties between India and Bhutan date back to 1968, with the foundational Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation signed in 1949, further revised in February 2007, forming the basis of their relations.
