India's visit to Israel marked a historic moment

Narendra Modi’s arrival at Tel Aviv indicates the augmentation of the relationship of India and Israel.

The diplomatic ties with Israel were restores by India some 25 years ago. Narendra Modi’s visit makes him the first sitting Prime Minister to visit Israel. His visit to Israel will comprise of three days long negotiation with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The talks will be on various military and cybersecurity deals worth billions. This comprises of the drones, missiles and radar systems. Both countries also spoke on the creation of a jointly made missile-based defence system.

India is already Israel’s biggest arms market worth $ 1 billion a year. This is to keep the nation’s military at par with that of China and Pakistan. However, Narendra Modi won’t be meeting Palestinian leaders. India’s relationship with Israel ranges from agricultural cooperation to military and security. Narendra Modi is given a red carpet treatment for his maiden visit to the country. Also, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be accompanying him in his entire duration of the visit.

The visit is termed a “historic” one and truly will enhance Israel-India ties in almost all fields in which Israel is involved.
