The beauty of Bhutan Suddenly I am feeling popular as an Israeli. On the heels of Israels new ties with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and most recently Morocco, Israel is now one of a relatively few nations to be honored to have diplomatic ties with Bhutan (Israel established full relations with Bhutan, December 13.) The nation of Bhutan is something of a mystery to most people, but in embracing its decision to normalize ties with Israel, we look forward to welcoming visitors from that south Asian country and hope to be able to visit them in return. The connection between our two countries is mutually beneficial. Tourists from that beautiful landlocked Bhutan can enjoy Israels fabulous Mediterranean beaches and Israelis can hopefully learn something from Bhutans political culture, as Bhutan has been ranked as the least corrupt country in its region. Two additional interesting facts: 1) Environmentally conscious Bhutan is considered the only carbon-negative country in the world, and 2) Bhutan is one of the minority of countries that did not support the 2018 United Nations resolution against the decision of the USA to establish an embassy in Jerusalem. Bhutan, we salute you and look forward to a long and warm friendship!
