ABSTRACT
Bhutan has always wished India to have a stable government. Bhutan reaps the benefit of the stable Indian government. Diplomatic relations between India and Bhutan were established in 1968 with the appointment of a resident representative of India in Thimphu. The foundation of India- Bhutan bilateral relations is the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation signed in 1949 between the two countries, which was updated and signed during the visit to India of His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck in February 2007.Bhutan remains India’s closest neighbor, friend and ally. The relationship has been cemented further with recent visit of Indian Prime Minister and the President.
