President likely to visit Bhutan next month
President Abdul Hamid is likely to visit Bhutan early next month during which both countries will discuss bilateral issues.
The President will be visiting the South Asian country at the invitation of Bhutanese King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck.
However, the date of the four-day visit is yet to be finalised and both sides are working to find a date mutually convenient to the two countries, Foreign Ministry sources said.
Meanwhile, a diplomatic source said the visit might take place on July 1-4.
President Abdul Hamid, during the visit, is likely to hold official talks with the Bhutanese King.
Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay and important cabinet members will also meet the President.
The Bhutanese King Jigme Wangchuck had visited Bangladesh in 2011 and 2013.
In 2011, he visited Bangladesh to attend the celebration of 40 years of Bangladesh’s independence.
The Bhutanese King had visited Bangladesh in 2013 with his newly married wife Queen Jetsun Pema and spent six days in a private visit.
Bhutan first recognised Bangladesh in 1971 and the acknowledgment came on December 6 through a wireless message.
