Bhutan supports India on Surgical strikes along LoC


Bhutan stands “shoulder-to-shoulder” with India in its fight against terror, said Bhutan’s Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay, adding that its decision to pull out of the SAARC summit came as an act of solidarity with India.

“The security situation is deteriorating because of terror and terrorism which cannot be tolerated. And the worst form of terrorism is cross-border terrorism,” Mr. Tobgay said in an exclusive interview to The Hindu here on the sidelines of the BRICS-BIMSTEC outreach , where he also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“If you are going to act only when you have been violated personally, then you can’t claim to be part of a greater commons,” Mr. Tobgay said.
