CPI(M) opposes Netanyahu's India visit

Benjamin Netanyahu faces a new scandal after recordings emerged of his 26-year-old stay-at-home son joyriding at taxpayer expense to Tel Aviv strip clubs

Launching a scathing attack on the upcoming tour of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, CPI (M) mouthpiece People's Democracy, in an edit published on Thursday, said that he was not welcome in India. Mr. Modi was the first Indian Prime Minister to have visited Israel after the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1992. Netanyahu will attend the annual Raisina Dialogue, a geopolitical conference in Delhi.

Netanyahu, who would be leaving for India January 14, said: "Well I would have preferred a different vote to be frank but I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel". "We want to take it to higher level", said Bhaskar.

"These issues have set mechanism". This covers defence equipment as well as defence industry and technology cooperation which are developing very well. "I am sure you will be updated on that". It was decided that both Prime Ministers should exchange visits.

Modi had visited the Jewish state in July a year ago, becoming the first Indian premier to do so.

Asked whether purchase of Spike anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) from Israel through the government-to-government (G-to-G) route will be discussed during Netanyahu's visit, Bhaskar refused to give a direct reply.

China orders probe into Marriott for listing Tibet as country
Another said that while Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong are sometimes listed separately, "it is the first time to list Tibet as such". Marriott now has more than 100 properties in China. "Totally disgusting Marriott behavior in the whole process".

Israeli Ambassador Daniel Carmon called Netanyagu's visit to India as the "grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of growing partnership".

Mr Netanyahu is the second Israel Prime Minister to visit India after Ariel Sharon in 2003, when the BJP led government was in power.

On January 17 he will join PM Narendra Modi in a tour to Gujrat, where the two Prime Ministers will visit the Centre of Excellences and inaugurate a Center of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference. They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and centres.

On 18th Jan the Israeli PM will travel to Mumbai where he will meet with Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.
