Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu's India visit: Innovation to be top agenda

The commitment is in addition to the India-Israel Industrial R&D and Technological Innovation Fund of United States dollars 40 million over five years with equal contribution from both sides that has already been agreed between the two sides, deputy director general of Israel's Foreign Ministry, Gilad Cohen, had told PTI.

Last month, India raised many eyebrows at home when it voted for an Arab resolution criticising Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Conflicting reports about India's uncertain proposal to purchase Spike anti-tank missiles from Israel are also swirling in power corridors.

Netanyahu will be flying in with a 130-member business delegation as well as top officials from the Israel Innovation Authority and Israel's National Trade Commission.

"If there is a problem, it can, it should and it will be solved", said Daniel Carmon, Israel's ambassador to India referring to the cancellation of the defence deal.

"I do not want to elaborate on defence issues". Israel sells nearly $1bn in defence hardware to India every year and is one of the country's top four arms suppliers.

In April last year the two countries signed a military deal worth almost $2 billion which includes the supply over several years of medium-range surface-to-air missiles, launchers and communications technology.

A unique contribution by Prime Minister Modi has been to successfully de-hyphenate India's relations with Israel from those with the Palestinians. The MEA said Modi and Netanyahu will hold talks to deepen the "very very special relationship".

"Prime Minister of India Moody is a close friend of Israel and mine and I appreciate the fact that he personally accompanies me in large parts of the visit, " Netanyahu added.

Bollywood "mega-celebs wield tremendous influence around the world", Cohen said.

"You can imagine the effect that would have on our tourism, on Israel's exposure".

The envoy spoke about his country's position on India's UNGA vote while sharing details of the January 14-19 visit by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israeli PM will call on President Ram Nath Kovind later in the day.

Netanyahu, accompanied by his wife Sara, would be travelling to Agra to see the Taj Mahal on Tuesday and return to Delhi to participate in the Raisina Dialogue. But in the past 25 years since India established diplomatic relations with Israel, New Delhi has developed a multifaceted relationship with the Jewish state spanning defence, agriculture, irrigation and counter terrorism.

The bonding between the two PMs, Modi and Netanyahu, will also act as a catalyst in forging stronger ties between the two nations.
