Defence deals, Bollywood: India ready to greet PM Netanyahu

The date and place of a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin will be agreed on in the near future, a source in the Israeli embassy in Moscow told TASS on Friday. He hinted that New Delhi was reconsidering buying the missiles through government to government route. He said Tel Aviv attaches a lot of importance to the votes in the United Nations, and that these have always been on the joint agenda between India and Israel.

"There is a lot of importance to votes at the UN", Carmon said.

"The Prime Minister's visit to India is the grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of Growing Partnership between India and Israel", Israel's envoy to India, Ambassador Daniel Carmon said.

Kabir Taneja, an associate fellow at the Observer Research Foundation (ORF), a New Delhi-based think tank, pointed out that Mr Netanyahu's five-day trip was "a long time for any state visit".

"On this visit, I intend to strengthen the relations between the two countries even more", Netnayahu said in a statement released by the Prime Minister's office.

Several agreements including in the field of oil and gas, renewable energy, amended protocol for airports, cyber security, co-production of films and documentaries will be signed between the two sides.

The Farm Bureau supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), from which Trump withdrew soon after taking office a year ago . He also said the nation's farmers should expect a timely farm bill passage that includes crop insurance support.

The Israeli PM would be formally welcomed the next day at the Rashtrapati Bhawan following which he would lay a wreath at Rajghat. This will be followed by business summits and a call-on with President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhavan. On Tuesday, Mr Netanyahu will visit the Taj Mahal and then attend the annual "Raisina Dialogue" geo-political conference, news agency AFP reported.

Modi will be reciprocating the reception he received from Netanyahu during his visit to Israel in July.

The timing of the visit offers both leaders much-needed opportunity to restore the diminished trust and re-calibrate their bilateral ties.

Netanyahu would be arriving in Mumbai on Wednesday in the evening where he would be meeting with the Indian Jewish community. "I am deeply honoured to stand here today to salute the valiant soldiers, who laid down their lives for the liberation of Haifa during the first World War", Modi had written in the visitors' book.

Modi's was the first ever state visit by an Indian PM to Israel, where India-Israel relationship was upgraded to strategic level, with special focus on cooperation in agriculture and water.

After his arrival, Netanyahu is likely to visit Teen Murti circle, where the "Haifa liberation day" is commemorated every year on September 23 - Teen Murti Marg is being renamed as Teen Murti Haifa Marg.
