Prime Minister arrives in Israel on historic visit

Prime Minister arrives in Israel on historic visit

Netanyahu personally received Modi at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport, an honour previously accorded only to the Pope and the US President.

Israel's per capita gross national product (GNP) has reached $40,000, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in a speech Tuesday morning - nearly as high as Japan's.

The national anthem of both the countries were played by the militray band and the two leaders stood side by side. "Encouraging entrepreneurship is the great challenge of the Israeli economy", the Prime Minister added. "As such, we must resolutely oppose the evils of terrorism, radicalism and violence that plague our time", he said.

Talking to Hindustan Times after the ceremonial welcome, Micheal Oren, deputy minister in the Israeli Prime Minister's Office, said with India and the United States as friends of Israel, a close trilateral relationship would be the future.

'India is a very old civilisation, but a young nation, ' Modi says. Doval kept in mind the idea of making Modi's visit a historic one and therefore he chalked out a robust proposal on the security front.

India is now the world's fastest growing major economy, a status that Modi is hoping to cement by drawing in more foreign investment.

"Prime Minister we have been waiting for you for a long time. It's so natural that we can ask what took so long for them to blossom", he said. Alongside building a partnership for shared economic prosperity, we are also cooperating to secure our societies against common threats such as terrorism.

The late afternoon sun beat down on the red carpet at a secluded corner of Ben Gurion Airport, as Air India One taxied up. Introduced by Modi, Netanyahu told him, "I am glad this day has come to fruition, and you have something to do with it". "The two leaders were briefed about the research technologies being used there for floriculture", the office said in a series of tweets. Modi will meet President Reuven Ruvi Rivlin and address the CEOs of the two countries as well as the Indian diaspora on Wednesday.

Rivka and Gavriel Holtzberg were killed by terrorists at Nariman House during the Mumbai attacks in 2008.

Israeli analysts have noted that Modi is not scheduled to travel to Ramallah to meet Palestinian leaders during his three-day stay, as is common for visiting dignitaries.

India supports all efforts to find an acceptable solution to all the pending issues, including Jerusalem, he added.

The visit coincides with India and Israel marking 25 years of their diplomatic relations and 50 years of occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
