This is going to be the most serious foreign policy lesson as well as a challenge for Prime Minister Narendra Modi as he embarks on a trip to Brazil on Sunday to attend the sixth Brics summit in Brazil. Modi is no longer a bunny in foreign policy as he began his prime ministerial tenure on 26 May on an unprecedented diplomatic outreach to eight countries, including seven Saarc leaders. After that he visited Bhutan, his first foreign bilateral visit. But now he is getting into more serious diplomatic business. In Brazil, he will be sharing the diplomatic high table for the first time. He will not only be meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time during the Brics summit but will also be holding one-to-one meetings with the rest of Brics leaders. He will be the first Indian PM to interact with the entire Latin American leadership under one roof in one go.
