Trade to top agenda as Netanyahu set to visit India


In July a year ago, Modi visited Israel as the first Indian Prime Minister since the establishment of bilateral ties in 1992.

During his visit, the Prime Minister Netanyahu will hold meetings in the national capital with President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj.

Netanyahu is also likely to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra and will be in Mumbai for a business meet before he flies home next Friday.

The meeting was well attended by Maulana Mahmood Madani, Sirajuddin Quraishi, President India Islamic Culture Centre, John Dayal, Secretary General All India Christian Council, Harcharan Singh Josh, Ashok Bharati Dalit leader, Naveed Hamed, President All India Muslim Majlis Mushavirat and Maulana Niyaz Farooqui member Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind.

Speaking at a news conference with Shaked, the prime minister said the media "crossed a line" by paying for and airing the secret conversation. That trip came as Israel and India marked the 25th anniversary of the official establishment of diplomatic relations.

Benjamin Netanyahu will deliver the keynote address at the Raisina Dialogue organised by the Observer Research Foundation on January 16, and then travel to Ahmedabad with Modi.

He said the bilateral commerce between the two countries stood at $5 billion in 2016-17 which did not include defence trade.

"These issues have set mechanism". This covers defence equipment as well as defence industry and technology cooperation which are developing very well.

The comments were released by Israeli investigative web magazine The Hottest Place in Hell, which said Netanyahu and his friend Ori Maimon, the son of gas tycoon Kobi Maimon, could be overheard discussing how much different sex acts with a prostitute would cost in "blunt" language. "If you believe investigating a prime minister is simple, that is a false assumption".

Modi had visited the Jewish state in July previous year, becoming the first Indian premier to do so.

"The Prime Minister's visit to India is the grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of Growing Partnership between India and Israel". Mr. Modi was the first Indian Prime Minister to have visited Israel after the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1992. They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and centre.

It said he will reach out to Bollywood in an exclusive "Shalom Bollywood" event.
