Bhutan China Talks

Here are exclusive details from the ongoing closed door talks between Bhutan and China in Thimphu. We are publishing the first draft of what was agreed by China to Bhutan and vice versa.


A bridge of River Maokhola in southern Bhutan was promised by the DPT when it came to power. Lack of funds stalled the project. During the ongoing border talks between Bhutan and China in Thimphu, the Bhutanese side has agreed to name the bridge after Chairman Mao if funds come by from there.
