Though Modi's visit to Israel was combined with a visit to Hamburg in Germany, to attend the G-20 summit from July 6th to 8th, Israel takes away the world attention, as the Indian Prime Minister is paying his first official visit to the country, which was instrumental in dividing the Post-War world.

He said that Israel has expressed its "great willingness" over the last three years to participate in India's flagship initiatives like Make in India, Clean Ganga, Smart Cities and Digital India. Israel's Sofer refused to discuss that sector during his meeting with reporters in Jerusalem on Monday: "We have no intention whatsoever, like any other country in the world, of discussing our defense partnership or relationship with any country, including the one that we are talking about now".

There was a five-to 10-fold increase in crop yields with an accompanying 65 per cent reduction in use of water and noticeable decrease in the use of pesticides and fertilisers, according to a December 2014 report on the Indo-Israel Agriculture Project.

"The book deals with examination stress and how knowledge is more important than marks".

In addition, he said, "I hope to get insights into Israel's accomplishments in technology and innovation through on-site visits". In the cyber field, meanwhile, Israel Aerospace Industries is working with local Indian partners on space cooperation and developing high-res radar satellites. Israel supports India's bid for permanent membership of the UN Security Council. That is a sign of how innovative commercial exchanges are already transforming the relationship.

It's not surprising, therefore, that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hailed his Indian counterpart's visit to Israel as a "very significant step" in strengthening bilateral relations that are on a "constant upswing".

Indian President Pranab Mukherjee visited Israel and Palestine both and also the Pope Francis.

Israeli ambassador Daniel Carmon said that PM Modi's visit is being treated with unprecedented importance.

He plans to also give a massive rally to the Indian diaspora.

"I assume the question refers to our embassy in Tel Aviv". "I am happy to return after more than a decade, and I look forward to seeing the developments and advances Israel has made in this time". Discussions were mainly regarding free trade zones in Trincomalee, Hambantota free trade as well as the Colombo port. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a decision to write a book addressing core issues pertaining to the youth of India like overcoming examination stress, keeping one's composure and activities to do once the examinations are over.

India is the world's biggest importer of defence equipment, and Israel has become one of its major suppliers.

Is PM Narendra Modi going to meet Moshe, the boy who survived the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai? He has since moved to Israel, where he lives with his maternal grandparents.

In the Knesset, Israel's parliament, PM Netanyahu spoke about positive ties between Jewish people and India.

Israeli universities and academic institutions offer programmes aimed at students, innovators, and researchers as well as corporate leaders from India.
