Israel PM Netanyahu to embark on a 6-day visit to India

Israel PM Netanyahu to embark on a 6-day visit to India

The visit will include New Delhi, Gujarat and Mumbai.

The visit come months after Modi's trip to Israel in July previous year - a first by an Indian Prime Minister since the two countries established diplomatic ties only in 1992 even as India had recognized the Jewish state soon after it was founded. "(They) will be accorded a grand welcome".

"iCreate" was formally launched in 2011 by Modi when he was the chief minister.

Several MoUs, 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 piece says that contrary to Mr. Modi's support for the Israeli occupation, people of India have always stood in solidarity with the Palestinian people and against Israeli aggression: "The coalition headed by Netanyahu is the most right-wing government that Israel has had". That trip came as Israel and India marked the 25th anniversary of the official establishment of diplomatic relations.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Netanyahu will hold talks on Monday covering entire expanse of the ties and explore new areas of cooperation to further deepen the "very very special relationship", the External Affairs Ministry said. Hectic preparations are on to extend a warm welcome to Mr. Netanyahu.

The Israeli prime minister will have a number of engagements in Mumbai on January 18.

Netanyahu's wife Sara will accompany him.

Modi would be accompanying Netanyahu to Gujarat on Wednesday where he will be welcomed in the same fashion as Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was with a "road show" in Ahmedabad.

Netanyahu would be arriving in Mumbai on Wednesday in the evening where he would be meeting with the Indian Jewish community.

Asked whether Baby Moshe, the Israeli child who lost his parents in the 2008 terror attack on a Jewish centre in Mumbai, will be part of Netanyahu's delegation or whether Moshe will attend Jewish community event, Bhaskar said finer details of the Israeli PM's visit were still being worked out. He will reach out to Bollywood in an exclusive "Shalom Bollywood" event.
