Bhutan admitted in July that separatists from Assam in northeastern India have had bases in the country since the mid-1990s. Bhutan National Assembly at the same time mandated the country’s army to use force to force the rebels out of the country, but it was unclear if and when such an offensive would be carried out. A few months later, separatists reportedly attacked their bases by Assam police forces.
