Modi had described India’s ties with Israel as'special

Netanyahu will accompany Modi for most of his trip, which includes a visit to Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, and working meetings with President Reuven Rivlin and opposition leader Isaac Herzog.

Israel is India's third-largest source of arms, with a 7.2 percent share of imports between 2012 and 2016, next to the USA (14 percent) and Russian Federation (68 percent).

Describing Israel as an "important development partner", he said, "This is an exciting journey that we will undertake together, for the good of our people and our society". "We view you as kindred spirits in our common quest to provide a better future for our peoples and for our world".

PM Modi was given a red carpet welcome by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu upon his arrival after which both leaders made short statements before leaving the airport to take part in the official engagements and programs for the day.

"We also want to put in place a robust security partnership to respond to shared threats to our peace, stability, and prosperity".

The first bunch of a Chrysanthemum flower named after Prime Minister Narendra Modi was presented to him.

India established diplomatic relations with Israel in 1992, when #Narasimha Rao was the prime minister. Dinesh Sharma - an expert on India-Israel relations based at the Institute of Global Cultural Studies at SUNY-Binghamton - told The Algemeiner on Tuesday. The ties between the two nations have seen rapid growth since the establishment of full diplomatic relations a quarter century ago, Modi said.

December 1997: Israeli President Ezer Weizman led a 24-member business delegation to India. If the deal is finalized, 2017 will be a record year in terms of Israeli weapons sales to India.

Modi arrived in Israel on Tuesday afternoon, the first visit to Israel by an Indian head of government.

The two leaders were briefed about the research technologies being used there for floriculture. "We are setting up a $40 million innovation fund as the seed for even greater cooperation on technology between us", the Israeli Prime Minister added.

"Crysanthumun" flower will be named in honor of PM Narendra Modi.

The Caravan reported that when Indian Air Force faced problems of limited sight of the Pakistani bunkers and inaccurate unguided missiles, it got the support from Israel's Air Chief Marshal Tipnis who committed IAF Mirage 2000H fighters capable of delivering laser-guided bombs to ground attack operations.

In a departure from standard protocol, Modi will not be visiting the Palestinians, though all sides have tried to play down the decision. Citing how, the country had been ardently waiting for this visit for a really long time, for about 70 years, PM Netanyahu left Modi ji in smiling ear-to-ear.
