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

  • Netanyahu says his fourth meeting with Trump could take place before March

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".

Israeli Prime Minister Prime Benjamin Netanyahu will arrive here on Sunday to give a fillip to 25 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries during a six-day trip that will also take him to Ahmedabad for a roadshow with "friend" Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Russian president and the Israeli prime minister last met in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi on August 23, 2017, while on March 10, 2017, they held talks in Moscow.

Now trade between the two countries is around 5 billion USA dollars, of which three billions is for exports.

India last month had joined 127 other countries to vote in the United Nations General Assembly in favour of a resolution opposing the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Netanyahu will attend the annual Raisina Dialogue, a geopolitical conference in Delhi.

The "road show" is said to be an 8-kilometer drive from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

Modi and Japanese premier Shinzo Abe had held a joint roadshow during the latter's visit here in September a year ago.

The PM will host a grand lunch for his guest, and the two leaders will visit Sabarmati ashram. Netanyahu will also visit Centre of Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Centre of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference.

"They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and center", the embassy said in a statement.

But his engagements in Mumbai are likely to create a buzz. It was in Mumbai that Chabad house had come under attack during the terror attacks in 2008.

In Mumbai, Netanyahu will meet with Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.

Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India comes 15 years after Ariel Sharon came to Delhi in 2003. Israeli PM will woo Bollywood in a "Shalom Bollywood" event.
