 Bhutan Paro, Thimpu 15–16 June State visit
Details
 Brazil Fortaleza, Brasilia 13–16 July BRICS Summit & State visit
Details
   Nepal Kathmandu 3–4 August State visit
Details
Modi arrived for a two-day visit to Nepal on 3 August. The last visit of an Indian prime minister to Nepal was 17 years ago in 1997 by I. K. Gujral.[1][Note I] The talks with Nepal were focused on reviewing the 1950's Treaty of Peace and Friendship, India-funded hydroelectricity projects in Nepal and other infrastructure projects in Nepal.[2] Following Jana Andolan, that marked the beginning of constitutional democracy in 1990, Modi became the first foreign leader to address the Parliament of Nepal.[3][4] The Western media read it as a shift in foreign affairs for India,[5] as well as a Nepal policy shift.[6] He did puja at the fifth century Pashupatinath temple (where he donated Rs. 25 crores and the high priest, Ganesh Bhatta, said: "I told him that we see him as a mascot for Hinduism, and appreciate his efforts in saving Hindu culture").[7] Further he pledged not to interfere in Nepal's internal affairs (following controversy of appointment of Indian priests at a Nepali temple[8]), Modi announced a credit assistance programme of US$1 billion to Nepal and said "Nepal can free India of its darkness with its electricity. But [sic] we don't want free electricity, we want to buy it. Just by selling electricity to India, Nepal can find a place in the developed countries of the world." He also told Nepali MPs he wanted to turn India's "hostile borders benign and ultimately gateways for free trade and commerce...borders must be bridges not barriers." The Kathmandu Post reacted in writing: "Modi mantra warms Nepal's hearts."[5] The New York Times also suggested the lack of a meeting with former King Gyanendra signified that India would not support a return to monarchy[6] despite the lack of a new constitution of Nepal. The commonality of a majority Hindu heritage was also played up.[7]
 Japan Kyoto, Tokyo 30 August–3 September State visit
Details
Modi visited Japan on a five-day official trip from 30 August to 3 September, which is labelled as his first bilateral state visit outside the subcontinent. His 2014 visit further strengthened the ties between the two countries, and resulted in several key agreements, including the elevating of the already established strategic partnership to the "Special Strategic Global Partnership". During his visit, official negotiations on the sale of US 2 amphibious aircraft for the Indian Navy and the long pending civil nuclear agreements have both progressed.[9][10]

Details
Modi delivered his maiden speech in the sixty-ninth session of the United Nations General Assembly on 27 September 2014, in which he called for the reform and expansion of the United Nations Security Council, most notably bringing attention to India's long standing demand of a permanent membership. He expressed his concerns over the relevance of a 20th century setup in the 21st century, and stressed the need to evaluate the UN's performance in the past 70 years. He also questioned why the UN should serve as the G-All for global governance, instead of several parallel sub-groupings like the G7 or G20. In the wake of the ISIS threat in West Asia and other similar threats in other parts of the world, Modi urged for the immediate implementation of the 'Comprehensive on International Terrorism' by the UN and offered India's pro-active role in it, citing India as a victim of terrorism for decades. Prior to his speech, he, along with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, met with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, to discuss issues relating to UN governance.[15] Modi also ridiculed the possibility of any multilateral intervention on the issue of Kashmir, a demand Nawaz Sharif made in his address at the UNGA on 26 September, stating that the Indian government is ready for 'bilateral talk' with Pakistan provided that Pakistan cultivate a suitable environment for talks by giving up its terrorism policy against India.[16] Modi commented briefly on climate change and the use of clean energy. In this regard, he also asked world leaders and UN officials to recognise and observe Yoga Day, in order to emphasise the importance of incorporating Yoga into a modern-day lifestyle.[17] Modi also was known for fasting during a White House dinner for the Hindu festival of Navratri.[18]
