The three terms on the right-hand side account for the following effects: The foreign country accumulates assets thanks to (1) interest income in the presence of an existing positive net foreign asset position, (2) excess returns on its gross holdings of foreign assets and (3) a trade surplus. By definition, the change in the net foreign asset position equals the current account balance.
