The Prime Minister, who will attend the BRICS Summit in South Africa, will first stop in Rwanda for a two-day visit, the first by an Indian prime minister, T.S. Tirumurti, secretary (Economic Relations) in the MEA, told reporters at a  media briefing.

India is expected to sign a defence cooperation agreement during the visit, he said.

On the final leg of his trip, Mr. Modi will go to South Africa where he will attend the BRICS Summit during which a host of global issues, including those related to international peace and security will be discussed.
