Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu to visit India next week

In the summer of 2015, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's son partied with friends at a Tel Aviv strip club.

Prime Minister Netanyahu will arrive in New Delhi on January 14 and depart from Mumbai on January 19.

Apart from Delhi, he will visit Ahmedabad and Mumbai, with Modi accompanying him to Gujarat. "Netanyahu and Modi are ideological soul mates - one represents right-wing ultra-Jewish nationalism while the other is an advocate of right-wing Hindutva nationalism", the CPI (M) said in an editorial of its mouthpiece People's Democracy.

Speaking with reporters in Jerusalem on Tuesday, the prime minister said his son was right to apologize.

"We have uprgaded our relationship to strategic level with special focus on agriculture and water", he said.

Bhaskar parried a directly reply when asked about the reported revival of talks on India's purchase of 8,000 Spike anti-tank missiles from Israel that was cancelled last week.

Israel's foreign ministry deputy director general for Asia, Gilad Cohen, on Wednesday said the trip was meant to further deepen political, trade and cultural ties. India has a long and wide ranging defence cooperation with Israel.

"The Prime Minister's visit to India is the grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of Growing Partnership between India and Israel".

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.

Official engagements begin on Monday: a guard of honour at Rashtrapati Bhavan, wreath-laying at Rajghat, and meetings with President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu. 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 center. Both the leaders are likely to visit Sabarmati Ashram, abode of Mahatma Gandhi. "The Prime Minister will reach out to Bollywood in an exclusive "Shalom Bollywood" event", the statement read.
