  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends a cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister's office in Jerusalem

Netanyahu will be visiting New Delhi, Agra, Ahmedabad and Mumbai.

Last month, India supported the Egypt-sponsored vote in UN General Assembly that demanded the U.S. comply with Security Council decisions against changing the status of Jerusalem. Carmon maintained that his country would have preferred a different vote, but said, "I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his Israel visit, had met Moshe and his nanny, who rescued him.

In Mumbai on January 18, Netanyahu would be meeting with the Indian Jewish community. The agreements and MoUs, sources said, will reflect a "people connect" emphasised by Israel ambassador Daniel Carmon, covering agriculture, innovation, water management etc. The PM Modi-Netanyahu bromance was seen to be carefully choreographed, complete with shots of bear hugs and them walking barefoot together through the Mediterranean surf.

But Modi has said he wants to end India's status as the world's number one defense importer and to have 70 per cent of hardware manufactured domestically by the turn of the decade.

"I don't think it can influence the relationship". He said the tremendous strengthening of ties on all fronts would in due course "will see a reflection of that more often in the voting of India in worldwide forums".

Similarly, India's vote at the United Nations and Mr Modi's planned trip to Palestine will not affect the growing relationship between the leaders, he said. "It just takes longer on the global front", he stressed. This covers defense equipment, defense industry and technology cooperations which are developing very well.

Both India and Israel are eager to expand bilateral trade, from the present annual value of $4bn to $10bn by 2022. Last year, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd won almost $2 billion in contracts from India.

Mr Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party have not tried "to hide the fact that they find big commonalities between India and Israel", Mr Taneja said. PM Modi will host Netanyahu for dinner on Sunday night. When PM Modi went to Israel, the two leaders sat in a desalination vehicle which can purify 20,000 litres of sea water daily and 80,000 litres of muddy and contaminated river water daily. Modi and Netanyahu will have their official delegation level talks in New Delhi on January 15.

In Gujarat, the two Prime Ministers will visit the Centre of Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Centre of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via videoconference. "Sometimes, it is India that comes to Israel with a request and sometimes Israel comes to India with a request", he said. Over the last 25 years, bilateral trade between the two countries has increased from $200 million to over $4 billion (excluding defence) in 2016-17.

There is cooperation on security issues between the two countries, including a Joint Working Group on Counter-Terrorism.
