Trade to top agenda as Netanyahu set to visit India

Trade to top agenda as Netanyahu set to visit India

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

During his terms in office as prime minister - in 1996-1999 and from 2009 till now - Netanyahu has visited Russian Federation 12 times. He will attend the Raisina Dialogue in New Delhi besides meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The piece says that contrary to Mr. Modi's support for the Israeli occupation, people of India have always stood in solidarity with the Palestinian people and against Israeli aggression: "The coalition headed by Netanyahu is the most right-wing government that Israel has had".

He said the agriculture and water are the major strategic cooperation areas between the two nations and India will further like to expand the cooperation in these areas.

Now trade between the two countries is around 5 billion USA dollars, of which three billions is for exports.

On January 1, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Putin and Netanyahu had held a telephone conversation and agreed "to meet in the near future in order to discuss the current state of bilateral relations and exchange views on various global and regional issues".

Israel's Saare Tzedek hospital would be signing an agreement with India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare as well.

China's Huawei hit by last minute collapse of AT&T phone distribution deal
The deal reportedly died after members of both the US Senate and House intelligence committees wrote to the FCC. Huawei has denied these allegations for years now, but it looks like AT&T was unwilling to take the risk.

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

Netanyahu and Modi will participate in business events in Delhi and Ahmedabad, while the former will participate in separate business event in Mumbai.

The Israeli Embassy said the two premiers would "visit the Center of Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Center of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference". They will also visit the innovation centre.

According to an Ahmedabad civic body official, a joint roadshow on an 8 km stretch from the city airport to the Sabarmati Ashram is also on the cards.

But his engagements in Mumbai are likely to create a buzz.

The Mumbai leg includes Netanyahu's film industry outreach - Shalom Bollywood, an interaction with the Jewish community and a meeting with business heads.
