BHUTANESE Prime Minister Lotay Tshering called on President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhawan here on Saturday, the concluding day of his three-day visit to India.
Welcoming Tshering and his delegation on the golden jubilee year of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries, Kovind said India welcomed the successful conduct of the third general elections in Bhutan and congratulated Tshering on the victory of his party, Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa (DNT), according to a Rashtrapati Bhawan statement.

“The President reiterated India’s commitment to partner in the socio-economic development of Bhutan and to support its 12th Five-Year Plan based on its priorities,” the statement said. Tshering’s DNT, formed in 2013, won 30 of the 47 National Assembly seats in the elections held in October.
