I was born in Nepal: HM the King of Bhutan
The King of Bhutan, His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, revealed at an interaction with Nepal’s Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal that he was born at a Hospital in Kathmandu in the year 1980.
“Thus I have sentimental attachment with Nepal because I was born there in the year 1980”, he added.
“Nepal and Bhutan must join hands because we share similar cultural and geographical settings”, said the Bhutanese King.
“We both are landlocked, mountainous and developing nations”, he also said.
“Nepal and Bhutan have tremendous prospects of harnessing of Hydro-Electricity, we must thus work together in developing our respective economies”, the Bhutan King suggested PM Nepal.
Whereas other leaders of South Asian Countries separately paid courtesy calls on Bhutan King, however, the Bhutan King in a grand departure from all the diplomatic protocols himself came to see the election defeated Nepal PM at the Nepal House built in the SAARC village, say reports.
A rare honor indeed. Nothing remains now to be said for this grand honor granted to Nepal and its population by the Bhutanese Sovereign. Thanks Your Majesty!
The meeting between Nepal PM and Bhutanese King lasted for almost an hour.
Analysts opine that since His Majesty the King of Bhutan has himself admitted that he was born in Nepal and thus the Nepal Government is advised to confer upon the Bhutan King “Distinguished Honorary Citizen of Nepal” certificate organizing a grand ceremony befitting the sagacity , height and the modesty of the Bhutanese King.
It would be in the wisdom of both Nepal and Bhutan to cash in on from the frankness of the Bhutanese Monarch and initiate diplomatic activities to open Bhutanese embassy in Nepal and act in a manner that has been advised by the King of Bhutan in order to expand Nepal-Bhutan bilateral ties.
