Lyonchoen Tshering Tobgay was granted an audience by His Royal Highness Grand Duke Henri at the Grand Ducal Palace in Luxembourg.

Lyonchoen also visited the National Federation of Scouts and Guides.

Lyonchoen was accompanied by senior officials of the foreign affairs ministry, and the Bhutanese embassy in Brussels.

Lyonchhen will leave for New York today to attend the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit and the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
