Narendra Modi in Israel: Prime Minister Modi today arrived at the Ben Gurion Airport and was received by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his three-day visit. Modi is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the country. Both the leaders hugged and shook hands warmly with each other. “Aapka swagat hai mere dost,” Netanyahu said while welcoming Modi. PM Modi’s three-day visit to Israel is aimed at commemorating 25 years of establishment of diplomatic ties between the two countries and will also see discussions between him and his Israeli counterpart Netanyahu to explore ways to enhance cooperation in key strategic areas. PM Modi got a red carpet and grand welcome by Israel.

Watch This:

Ahead of Modi’s visit, Deputy Director General of Israel’s Foreign Minister Mark Sofer said Israel supports India hook, line and sinker on the issue of terrorism emanating from Pakistan and within the country. PM Narendra Modi and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu are expected to do a joint press conference later in the day.

Modi termed the visit as “groundbreaking” and said it is his singular honour to be the first-ever prime minister of India to visit Israel. “It is my singular honour to be the first ever PM of India to undertake this groundbreaking visit to Israel,” Modi was quoted as saying by ANI. Speaking out against terrorism, Modi said, ” Alongside building a partnership for shared economic prosperity, we are also cooperating to secure our societies against common threats such as terrorism”.

Netanyahu while expressing his love for India said, “we admire your culture, history, democracy and commitment to progress”. He is also confident of the real mathematics of life and success of the partnership with India for many reasons and added that both India and Israel can do even “better together”.

Also Watch:

To construct a successful partnership, Netanyahu gave a simple formula, “Formula for success is simple. It’s I-squared & T-squared, equals Indian talent & Israel technology, equals India-Israel ties for tomorrow”. Modi also added that he is keen to interact with Indian diaspora in Israel which includes a large number of Jews of Indian origin and an event has been scheduled later during his trip.

“I remember what you told me in our first meeting – when it comes to India and Israel relations, the sky is the limit. But now, prime minister, let me add even sky is not the limit. We are also cooperating in space,” PTI quoted Netanyahu saying Modi. While talking about his meeting with Israel PM, Modi said, “Building progressive partnership in all areas will shape my conversation with my friend Benjamin Netanyahu .”

Netanyahu described Modi as “a great leader of India and a great world leader”. He further added “we have been waiting for the last 70 years” for a visit by an Indian prime minister. Netanyahu’s entire cabinet was at the airport to receive Modi where the Indian prime minister was also accorded a Guard of Honour.
