Modi Says India Bhutan Relation Is Historic and New Government Will Continue It
Narendra Modi on Monday said his government was committed to making the India-Bhutan relationship stronger. He also said a stronger India will be better for Bhutan too.
“The relationship between India and Bhutan is historic. The new government is committed to make this even stronger,” Modi told members of the Bhutan Parliament on Monday.
“If you walk a few steps, we too feel like walking those steps and supporting you,” Modi said in his address in Hindi. Modi arrived in the Himalayan country on Sunday.
“Our hearts are always open for friendly relations with neighbours. A change in governance will not change that,” he said. “Strength of a democracy is very important for that region and its people. The stronger India will be, the better it is for Bhutan and other SAARC nations. A strong and stable India is needed to make sure that we can help our neighbours with their problems,” he said
