Govt examining G-to-G deal to buy Spike missile from Israel

The government is now examining the possibility of purchasing the missiles from Israel through the G-to-G route like it did in sealing the deal for procuring 36 Rafale jets from France, official sources said. With the vote happening weeks before Netanyahu's visit, it took many by surprise that India did not abstain from the vote and went ahead and voted for the resolution. At the time, Indian media reported that India's Defence Research and Development Organisation planned to develop and produce its own anti-tank missile domestically.

Netanyahu will be leading a high-profile delegation to India, which will comprise 130 businesspersons from 102 Israeli companies drawn from areas like agriculture, water, cyber security, healthcare and security.

South Carolina's governor urged his state's Senate on Wednesday to pass legislation created to counter campus antisemitism in time for.

"India has long-lasting and wide-ranging defense cooperation with Israel".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife will depart for an official visit to India on Saturday to establish diplomatic relations between the two countries and half a year after the visit of Indian Prime Minister Nerandra Moody.

The reference was to the U.S., Russian Federation and India.

Non-military trade between the two countries in 2016 reached $4.2 billion.

"The visit will include New Delhi, Gujarat and Mumbai", it said. "The relationship is much stronger than the one vote here and there", Carmon had said, but maintained that it was "not a happy" situation when members of the worldwide community did not vote in favour on the issue at the UN. In Mumbai on Thursday, Mr Netanyahu will meet business leaders, attend a memorial for the victims of the 2008 terror attacks on the city, and appear at Shalom Bollywood, a film industry event.

Again in 1971, Israel helped India during the India-Pakistan war. They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and center. Prime Minister Modi's visit was a very important milestone in that.

Israel has lobbied hard for support from countries such as India at the United Nations, but Netanyahu said Wednesday he did not envision any setback in relations over the vote.

Mr Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party have not tried "to hide the fact that they find big commonalities between India and Israel", Mr Taneja said. Looking at the history of India-Israel ties and a commitment for the strong and visionary leadership by both sides, there are fair chances that Netanyahu's visit will only further strengthen the already robust relationship.

Israel is a major weapons supplier to India, selling it an average of $1 billion of military equipment each year.

"Let's not forget that before Modi visited Israel a year ago, he hosted Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in New Delhi as well", Mr Taneja said.
