Guwahati: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Wednesday said that it has postponed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to Bhutan citing “inclement weather at Paro airport”.

“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 new dates are being worked out by the two sides through diplomatic channels,” the statement said a day before the scheduled visit.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was slated to visit Bhutan from March 21-22, 2024.

The visit was in keeping with the tradition of regular high-level exchanges between India and Bhutan and the Government’s emphasis on its Neighbourhood First Policy.

???India and Bhutan share a unique and enduring partnership which is rooted in mutual trust, understanding and goodwill.

Our shared spiritual heritage and warm people-to-people ties add depth and vibrancy to our exceptional relations.

The visit was expected to provide an opportunity for both sides to exchange views on bilateral and regional matters of interest and deliberate on ways to expand and intensify our exemplary partnership for the benefit of our people.
