Netanyahu-Putin meeting date to be agreed on soon - Israeli embassy

India says $500 million missile deal with Israel will move ahead

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.

"The Prime Minister's visit to India is the grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of Growing Partnership between India and Israel", Israel's envoy to India, Ambassador Daniel Carmon said. We always want the worldwide community to vote for us.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will embark on a six-day visit to India, starting from January 14.

On his trip to India, the Israeli Prime Minister will visit Delhi, Mumbai and Gujarat and will hold meeting with prominent Indian officials and members of the business community. 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".

Following all-night marathon negotiations, cabinet ministers on Friday morning unanimously approved a 2019 state budget of NIS 397.3 billion ($116.1 billion), which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised would ensure the political stability the government needed to survive until the end of its term late next year. "India's stance on Palestine is not new, and Israel is well aware of it".

"On this visit, I intend to strengthen the relations between the two countries even more", Netnayahu said in a statement released by the Prime Minister's office.

It was said that Zuma failed to separate from the second stage of the Falcon 9, broke up in the air and fell into the sea. An investigation is under way, but there is no initial indication of sabotage or other interference, they said.

On the day of his arrival, he will call on by External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj. "I am deeply honoured to stand here today to salute the valiant soldiers, who laid down their lives for the liberation of Haifa during the first World War", Modi had written in the visitors' book.

India, which has deep defence and security ties with Israel, is expected to discuss ways to increase cooperation in multiple fields, including trade, technology, agriculture and water management during Netanyahu's four-day visit.

According to a report in India's Hindustan Times on Wednesday, the deal will now be implemented on a government-to-government basis rather than working directly through the Israeli company Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Rawat said the deal was scrapped after the state-run Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) offered to manufacture similar missiles in line with premier Narendra Modi's pet "Make in India" initiative.

Israel's Saare Tzedek hospital would be signing an agreement with India's ministry of health and family welfare as well. Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. won almost $2 billion in contracts from India past year alone.
