minimizing the absolute value of a complex number


hi
cananybody tell me how to minimize the absolute value of the complex function
 
exp(jP)+exp(2*pi/180j)
 
where P is the unknown
 
i have some clue regarding taking the Cos and Sin values but i dont know how to minimize the equations
 
Re{exp(jP)}+Re{exp(2*pi/180j)}=0
 
Im{exp(jP)}+Im{exp(2*pi/180j)}=0
 
 
Thanx
