Israel to extend all possible support to India against Pakistan

Israel to extend all possible support to India against Pakistan

Since the Madison square garden event of the Prime Minister during his first visit to the U.S., the Congress has been critical of his foreign trips.

"It's a partnership made in heaven, but happening right now, here on earth", the Israeli Prime Minister said, eliciting roars of approval from the crowd. "We ve been waiting nearly 70 years in fact, because yours is truly a historic visit".

During his historic visit, Modi is expected to meet with a host of other high-level Israeli political figures, including opposition leader Yitzhak Herzog.

The two prime ministers spoke of strong commitments to combatting terrorism in all forms. Both the countries also chose to increase cooperation when it came to fighting terrorism to protect their strategic interests. His visit is aimed at focusing on strengthening the partnership between India and Israel in all spheres.

In the guest book at the President's residence Modi wrote that "It is a privilege to meet President Rivlin again today".

But past Indian governments have been cautious about highlighting ties with Israel, given concerns about a political fallout with Muslims in India, and the impact on ties with the Gulf states, where over seven million Indians live and work.

National security adviser Ajit Doval, during his visit to Tel Aviv in March this year, prepared the groundwork for robust and more open ties between the two powerhouses in the fields of terrorism and security.

In April, state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries said India would buy almost $2 billion worth of weapons technology, making it the military exporting giant's largest ever defence contract. India is also seeking to advance sales and the production of missiles, drones and radar systems.

RBI starts printing Rs 200 notes to ease money transactions
But, due to the pressing need to supply Rs 500 notes in the money market, the printing of Rs 1,000 notes was put on hold. The RBI reportedly intends to issue the Rs 200 notes to make daily transactions easier for people.

After concluding his meeting with the Israeli President, Modi tweeted, "Held talks with @PresidentRuvi".

But the frost has thawed in recent years, with India seeking closer defence ties - particularly as it moves away from relying on traditional ally Russian Federation for its military hardware.

India's prime minister from the nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, BJP, Narendra Modi, has become the first Indian premier to visit Israel.

Modi is the first ever Indian prime minister to visit Israel, a milestone he today called "a matter of joy". "Sure, I'd be glad to visit India".

"India is a growing economic powerhouse with a large market and talent pool".

Meanwhile, Modi's Israel visit is getting more media coverage in Europe and USA than his meeting with newly elected POTUS Donald Trump.

Netanyahu, at the event where his Indian counterpart addressed the diaspora here, introduced Prime Minister Modi to the jews of Indian origin, "Prime Minister, these are the jews of India".
