Bibi's India trip may revive missile deal

  • India says $500 million missile deal with Israel will move ahead

India, last month, had joined 127 other countries to vote in favour of a resolution opposing the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Ahead of the Prime Ministers' visit, Carmon said there would be a meeting between the entrepreneurs from "start-up nation Israel" and people from the Start-up India initiative.

"My father secured 20 billion dollars for your father, and you're arguing with me about 400 shekels?"

"But I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel".

India's 2014 deal to purchase the anti-tank missiles from Rafael was overturned last November.

There is speculation about the revival of talks on India's purchase of 8,000 Spike anti-tank guided missiles from Israel that was cancelled previous year.

Netanyahu will be accompanied by a 130-member delegation drawn from the cyber and agriculture sectors as well as from defence.




"However as the final product sold to us is often sub-contracted to smaller manufacturers, Israelis have a problem which they can only solve by moving part of the manufacturing to India and we have been telling them exactly that", said the officials.

"I do not want to elaborate on defence issues".

According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, which charts arms sales around the world, Israel sold $599m worth of arms to India in 2016, making it India's second-largest weapons supplier after Russian Federation, which sold India $1.6 billion in arms that year, says the Post. In April a year ago the two countries signed a military deal worth almost $2 billion, which includes the supply of medium-range surface-to-air missiles, launchers and communications technology.

Netanyahu's January 14-19 visit to the country comes six months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's historic trip to Israel a year ago.

Cohen said Netanyahu would present one to Modi during his visit next week.

B Bala Bhaskar, Joint Secretary (WANA) in the Ministry of External Affairs, told the media that when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Netanyahu will sit for a bilateral summit on 15 January, both sides "will be discussing a lot of issues".

Prime Minister Moody is also slated to accompany Prime Minister Netanyahu in large parts during the visit. The Israeli PM will call on President Ram Nath Kovind later in the day. In addition, he will give an inaugural speech at the Raisina Dialogue and meet with the Indo-Israeli CEO forum in Delhi. Innovation is the new sauce in the bilateral mix which will be seen not only through the meetings between Israeli and Indian start-ups, but also the inauguration of iCreate, an innovation hub in Gujarat.
