Topic: India's Modi to visit U.S. in September, first trip to Bhutan


Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the United States, most likely in September, but his first foreign trip will be a lot closer to home - to the tiny Himalayan state of Bhutan. Modi, who invited South Asian leaders to his swearing in on May 26, has sought to convert his landslide election victory last month into a platform to pursue a more assertive foreign policy and promote trade and investment. But, rather than Washington, Beijing or Tokyo, the 63-year-old premier will first visit Bhutan - a landlocked kingdom sandwiched between India and Chinese Tibet that has a population of less than 1 million. "The prime minister's inbox relating to foreign policy is very crowded," foreign ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin told a briefing on Friday.
