Modi's first participation in a multilateral meeting after taking over as Prime Minister will also give him an opportunity to meet with world leaders including Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and heads of South American countries.
Summit host and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has invited leaders of South American nations including those from Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuala and Suriname for the summit following the footsteps of South Africa which had invited African nations to the last year's summit in Durban.
"Prime Minister Modi will leave on July 13,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin told reporters in the national capital.
He added that Prime Minister will be making a transit stop in Germany but did not confirm whether any meeting has been planned with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
With an annual bilateral trade of more than 18 billion Euros, Germany is India's biggest trading partner in Europe and a meeting between both leaders assumes significance.
