Israel, India ink several agreements

On the third day of his historic Israel visit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the Haifa Indian Cemetery to pay homage to the courageous Indian soldiers who laid down their lives during the liberation of Haifa in 1918.

Some 10,000 members of the Indian community in Israel welcomed Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at an event in honor of his visit to Israel Wednesday night at the Tel Aviv Convention Center.

"These are the Jews of India, they love Israel, they love our friendship and we are in a historic meeting, two ancient people ceasing the future", he added.

On relations between the two nations, he said, CEOs and talents of India and Israel together are sowing seeds of miracles for betterment of the world.

Altogether seven agreements were signed between the two countries boosting cooperation water, agriculture and space.

Veena, who was criticised by her own nation for posing bold in the movie got a support from Indian actors when she was banned from entering her own country.

Modi, who is on a three-day visit to Israel, checked out a desalination plant and tasted the water.

"The West and Israel focus on the quality of technology and that becomes a massive force equalizer".

Talking about the reforms undertaken by his government, he said that 100 per cent is now allowed in the construction so that there is housing for all by 2022, the 75th anniversary of India's Independence.

Modi's Israel trip comes amid an escalating border dispute between India and neighboring China, with both sides accusing the other of territorial intrusions. It may have been only 25 years since we established diplomatic relations, but our ties go back hundreds of years. Indo-Israel trade has grown from about Dollars 200 million in 1992, when they established diplomatic ties, to almost USD 4.2 billion previous year. By 2016, that figure had skyrocketed to $4.16 billion, excluding defense expenditure.

Narendra Modi, however, is a very different character. "Ahead of Modi's visit, the publication was blunt in its assessment of India's foreign policy, stating "[the Visit] does not upend India's decades-long policy by betraying a tilt towards the Jewish state". Same with Israel, so when it looks East, it sees some stability in India.

CNN-News 18 quoted "Palestinian" Foreign Minister Tayseer Jaradat, saying "Palestinians feel that India has made a decision to enhance its cooperative relationship with Israel at the expense of the Palestinians".
