Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to visit India next week and ways to further deepen the already close defence ties between the two countries may figure during his talks with Indian leaders here, the report added.

Political observers have noted that the approval of next year's budget at such an early date would be a sign of the coalition's resilience and stability in the coming year, or, as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put it Thursday morning, at the start of the budget meeting: "This government has come to work and will continue to work together until the end of its term - in November 2019". The DRDO missiles are yet to be tested and will not be ready till 2022, which could hit India's operational capabilities in the interim, Rawat said.


PM Netanyahu's visit - he will be accompanied by 130-strong business delegation - is seen to be an effort to build on the July decision taken a year ago to elevate ties to a "strategic partnership" and deepen trade ties between the two countries. The visit is being seen as extremely significant as the two countries, are celebrating 25 years since the establishment of diplomatic ties.

Last month, India raised many eyebrows at home when it voted for an Arab resolution criticising Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The Israeli envoy however evaded a direct question on whether Israel had approached India for support ahead of the United Nations vote.


A case in point of Israel supporting India was when India wanted its candidate, justice Dalveer Bhandari, elected to the Hague-based International Court of Justice, Carmon said.

Netanyahu, who would be leaving for India on January 14, said: "Well I would have preferred a different vote to be frank but I don?t think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel".

Diplomats reported as confirming purchase of $500m of anti-tank weapons, days before Israeli PM arrives in Delhi.

. A press release from the Embassy of Israel in Delhi said that Mr. Netanyahu will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and centre.


Apart from the events in Delhi, the visiting Prime Minister will travel to Gujarat, where he will visit the Centre for Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Centre of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference.
