NEW DELHI (AFP) — The king of the Himalayan nation of Bhutan, which outlawed tobacco sales last month, says he plans to keep on smoking but is trying to light up less.
"I am a smoker. I am trying to cut down on cigarettes," King Jigme Singye Wangchuck told reporters in New Delhi as he wound up a six-day official visit to India, media reports Saturday said.
The king declined to tell reporters how many cigarettes he puffed daily.
"I don't want to tell you," he said
