Israel establishes diplomatic ties with Bhutan
Part of: GS Prelims and GS-II – International Relations
- Recently, Israel has established diplomatic ties with Bhutan.
- Earlier, Israel has supported Bhutanese human resource development since 1982, especially in the area of agriculture development that has benefited hundreds of Bhutanese youths.
- The two nations established a formal diplomatic relation and agreed to work closely together in various sectors.
- The two sides will not be setting up embassies and will coordinate through their missions in Delhi.
- The establishment of diplomatic relations would create new avenues for cooperation between the two countries in water management, technology, human resource development, agricultural sciences and other areas of mutual benefit.
- As for tourism, Bhutan that limits the number of outsiders who can enter will now likely be more open to Israelis.
- The ties between the peoples through cultural exchanges and tourism would also be further enhanced.
