KATHMANDU: The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday said thatExternal Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Bhutan's Foreign Minister Damcho Dorji, who met in Kathmandu earlier in the day, reviewed all aspects of India-Bhutan partnership which is wide-ranging.

"Both reviewed all aspects of India-Bhutan partnership which is wide-ranging," Joint Secretary in-charge of ties with Bhutan Sudhakar Dalela said, while addressing the press conference.

MEA Secretary (East) Preeti Saran said that the Bay of Bengal Initiatives for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) meeting was held in a very positive and constructive atmosphere.

All other member countries recognized role India has played in taking lead in rejuvenating this grouping," Saran said.

Swaraj, earlier in the day, said that India will be hosting the BIMSTEC Disaster Management Exercise in October this year.

Speaking about the outcome of the first meeting of BIMSTEC National Security Chiefs in New Delhi this year, she said a holistic approach was adopted to tackle traditional and non-traditional security challenges, which threaten the region.

"We worked out collective strategies to counter the scourge of terrorism, violent extremism and transnational crimes, as also to strengthen our maritime and cyber security cooperation. Specific follow-up measures in these areas are now under progress," she said.
