New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Japan, a key strategic partner, next month as he embarks on a busy foreign travel schedule in coming months that will include Bhutan, Brazil and the US.

The Prime Minister will be travelling to Bhutan later this month in his first foreign visit, the Spokesperson in the External Affairs Ministry said today while noting that Modi's foreign policy inbox was “very crowded”.  

On visits to other countries, he said there was a request by Japanese government for an early visit of Modi to their country and India was working “very closely” with them to work on that request. Probed further, the Spokesperson said the month of Modi's visit to Japan was likely to be July.  

During his visit to Japan, Modi will hold talks with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe on key bilateral and regional issues in the backdrop of China's growing assertiveness in the Asia-Pacific region.
