A statement released by the Israeli PM office said that Netanyahu will hold meetings with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, and External Affairs Minister Sushama Swaraj. Netanyahu not only received Modi at the airport in July, PM Modi was accorded the kind of welcome by every religious sect that is reserved for popes and United States presidents, officials had said then.
Netanyahu is also likely to visit the Taj Mahal in Agra and will be in Mumbai for a business meet before he flies home next Friday.
Paris: French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and pressed the importance of maintaining Iran's nuclear accord, the Elysee Palace said on Saturday.
He said Modi and Netanyahu would hold talks on a wide range of matters and "I am sure (the Palestine issue) is also going to come up".
In Gujarat, Modi and Netanyahu will also visit the Centre of Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Centre of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference. It wasn't clear why India scrapped the deal before the contract was signed.
Israel Ambassador Daniel Carmon said, "The Prime Minister's visit to India is the grand finale to the celebrations of 25 years of Growing Partnership between India and Israel".
The visit marks 25 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Netanyahu will be leading a high-profile delegation comprising 130 businessmen from 102 Israeli companies drawn from areas like agriculture, water, cybersecurity, healthcare and security.
Modi had visited the Jewish state in July past year, becoming the first Indian premier to do so. "I do not want to give more details on the defense issues".
India had last month joined 127 other countries to vote in the UNGA in favour of a resolution opposing the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Israel says Iran is dedicated to its destruction and supports global terror, in addition to backing Palestinian Islamic militants Hamas and Islamic Jihad and Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah.
Netanyahu will meet with Indian leaders and attend a tribute ceremony to the victims of the bombings in 2008 during which a Jewish center was stormed, killing six people including a rabbi and his wife.
