Israel PM arrives in Delhi, to be received by Modi at airport

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to arrive in India today meet PM Modi Sushma Swaraj

Netanyahu is on a six-day visit to India.

Netanyahu's first official meeting will be with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj. They're also expected to review progress in implementing agreements on cooperation in technology, water and agriculture that were signed during Modi's visit to Israel in July a year ago.

Modi's standalone visit to Israel in July this year celebrated 25 years of establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

It will be the Israeli Prime Minister's second visit to India after a gap of 15 years since Ariel Sharon visited New Delhi in 2003.

Bhaskar parried a directly reply when asked about the reported revival of talks on India's purchase of 8,000 Spike anti-tank missiles from Israel that was cancelled last week.

Netanyahu's visit comes six months after PM Narendra Modi became the first-ever Indian PM to visit Israel. The Indian prime minister skipped Palestine during his trip leading many analysts to say that New Delhi was changing its rules of engagement in the region. The two leaders will also be witnessing several innovative technologies in the field of water, agriculture and health at iCreate and visit a Centre of Excellence.

The Indian Ministry of Defense announced last week that it would buy 131 surface-to-air missiles from Israel.

"Since we talk about democracies, similar values, similar challenges..., the relationship is so strong between both the countries that our feeling is (that) nothing can reverse it", he said.

A business delegation will also join the trip "to enhance and strengthen economic ties and also create joint business opportunities between Israeli and Indian businesspeople", said the statement.

After his arrival, Netanyahu and PM Modi are likely to visit the Teen Murti Circle in New Delhi where the two leaders will lay a wreath at the monument, where the "Haifa liberation day" is commemorated every year on September 23.

Netanyahu's visit comes days after India voted against Israel at the United Nations on the Jerusalem issue.

Last month, however, India had voted at the UN General Assembly against the recognition by US President Donald Trump of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Daniel Carmon, the Israeli ambassador to India, said that the Israeli-India ties would withstand any troubles.
