Bhutan's newly-elected Prime Minister, Tshering Tobgay, recently completed a five-day visit to India, marking his first official trip since assuming office.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two-day trip to Bhutan has been postponed due to bad weather conditions, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said.

“Due to ongoing inclement weather conditions over Paro airport, it has been mutually decided to postpone the State visit of the Prime Minister to Bhutan on 21-22 March 2024,” the MEA said in a statement.

The statement further read that both sides are currently working together through diplomatic channels to determine the new dates.
Prior to this, the MEA had said that Modi would be visiting Bhutan on 21-22 March, to focus on the government’s Neighbourhood First Policy.
The Indian Prime Minister was scheduled to meet King of Bhutan Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Fourth King of Bhutan Jigme Singye Wangchuck.
He was also scheduled to hold talks with his Bhutanese counterpart Tshering Tobgay.
