Bhutanese Prime Minister Dr Lotay Tshering and Foreign Minister Dr Tandi Dorji have sent separate messages wishing speedy recovery of Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen.

"I am concerned to hear the news that you (Dr Momen) are not keeping well due to COVID-19 and I send my wishes for your speedy recovery," the Bhutanese Prime said in a message written to Dr Momen on Friday.

The Bhutanese Prime Minister said he is confident that with good medical care and attention, Dr Momen will recover soon to resume his important responsibilities. 

In a separate message, Bhutanese Foreign Minister Dr Dorji also wished for a quick recovery of Dr Momen.

Meanwhile, Bhutanese Foreign Secretary Kingya Singya wrote Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen wishing his speedy recovery.

Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen and Foreign Secretary Masud Bin Momen tested positive for Covid-19 recently.

They are now in good health and remain in isolation at home following doctors' recommendations, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

They both were scheduled to leave for Niger this morning (Wednesday) to attend the 47th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM).

The planned visit has been cancelled as they got the Covid-19 test reports on Tuesday.

They went for Covid-19 test as per rules before travelling abroad but had no COVID-19 symptoms before the COVID-19 test.
