Prime Minister Narendra Modi will embark on a two-day visit from June 15 to Bhutan, his first destination abroad after assuming office. Modi will be travelling to Bhutan and will hold talks on key bilateral and regional issues with the leadership of the Himalayan nation, top government sources said.

The visit reflects the importance India attaches to its ties with Bhutan whose Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay was among the leaders from the neighbouring countries to attend Modi's swearing-in on May 26. After the swearing-in, Modi had held a short duration bilateral meeting with the Bhutanese leader.

After Bhutan, Modi will be travelling to Japan in July. The Prime Minister is also likely to travel to Brazil to participate in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) summit in mid-July.
