PM Modi arrived earlier today at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport to a rapturous welcome by PM Benjamin Netanyahu and a guard of honour and it was clear from the smiles all around that a huge amount of importance was being accorded to the visit. The trip by PM Modi is indeed historic as he is the first Indian prime minister to visit the jewish country. Also linked to the visit is its strategic significance. For the first time India has de-hyphenated both Israel and Palestine and is all set to ink a number of defence, economic and anti-terror deals.
Located in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, 56 km from Jerusalem, in central Israel, the Danziger flower farm was founded in 1953. It is one of srael’s leading floriculture companies with approximately 80,000 square meters of state-of-the-art greenhouses specialising in reproduction of plants, according to a PTI report.
