The permanent mission of Bhutan to the United Nations in New York City

The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan and the United States of America share bilateral relations. Bhutan is represented in the US through its permanent mission to the United Nations.

While both countries do not share diplomatic missions, relations between two nations are reviewed as "friendly and close", due to shared values between the two countries. The growing alliance between India and the U.S. (see: India–United States relations) has also helped to improve US–Bhutanese bilateral relations.


The U.S. has offered to resettle 60,000 of the alleged 107,000 Bhutanese refugees of Nepalese origin now living in seven U.N. refugee camps in southeastern Nepal.
