NEW DELHI: General Dalbir Singh Suhag will go to Bhutan October 31 on a four-day visit, his first international trip after becoming the army chief, sources said on Tuesday.
He was supposed to visit the Himalayan nation last month. However, the tour was called off due to a standoff between India and China along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
The visit is in line with the Narendra Modi government's efforts to strengthen ties with all neighbours.
The army chief will also visit Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar in the coming days, the sources said.
Bhutan shares a 699-km long boundary with India. It also shares a 470km long boundary with China.
Like India, Bhutan also has unresolved border issues with China.
