Keen to meet Indians in Israel, unite against terrorism, says Modi

Keen to meet Indians in Israel, unite against terrorism, says Modi

It will commemorate 25 years of diplomatic ties between the two countries with the Indian Prime Minister also holding talks on a range of issues with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.

Congress said it will judge Modi's stand-alone visit to Israel without going to Palestine by its "concrete deliverables" but said that India's stand on Palestine issue should not be diluted. After all, India today is Israel's largest defence client and seeks more sophisticated weapons such as armed drones from the latter. "But the thing to watch out for", quipped a senior official, "is whether Modi will mention Palestine at all during his visit, bar the usual platitudes about support for a two-state formula".

During the historic visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Israel, the Middle Eastern country is looking to boost its exports by exploiting huge base of India's middle class consumers. "Israel is already helping Indian farmers grow better produce with cost-efficient means", it said.

But it is the defence relationship that is most advanced between the two countries. 800 million people in India fall below 35 years of age. To broker peace with the Arab world, the mandarins at the South Block deliberately confused India's political executive to distance itself from stepping into the borders of the landlocked Israel. "Prime Ministers visit Danziger Flower farm - a leading facility for Research and Development in plant varieties", Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said in a tweet.

Calling out the government on the issue of Palestine, another Congress leader Salman Khurshid said that the Government does not seem to have a clear position on that (Palestine).

Responding to Netanyahu, Modi said he was honoured to be the first ever Indian Prime Minister to undertake this ground breaking visit to Israel.

Both camps went as far as announcing an April bout. "I could hit him with the right shot and nobody knows what could happen". Horn has stopped all three of his most recent opponents, and has ended 11 of his 17 fights inside the distance.

Still, Bellemare is the kind of player that's typically not that hard to replace, so it's a little surprising Vegas went with him. As a result, these are not "a bunch of misfits nobody wanted", as then-winger Jody Shelley once described the 1992-93 Senators.

Beavers' streak at 23; Harrison slam fuels 13-1 win over LSU
Starter Eric Walker (8-2) left the game after throwing four pitches in the third inning because of forearm tightness. Eight LSU pitchers walked 12 batters, a season-high and maybe the most in Mainieri's 11 seasons coaching the Tigers.

In October 2016, the Indian government signed a $10 billion defense deal with Russian Federation, including sea and air weapons systems. Alongside building a partnership for shared economic prosperity, we are also cooperating to secure our societies against common threats such as terrorism.

Not any more. National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, during his visit to Tel Aviv in March this year, prepared the groundwork for a robust and more open ties between the two powerhouses in the fields of terrorism and security.

Perhaps the Modi government feels that making common cause with the Palestine movement brings it too close to extremist Palestinian groups such as Hamas.

The wording on the poster is in the colours of the Indian flag and invites members of the Indian community, in Hebrew and English, to a July 5 meeting with Modi in Tel Aviv.

He added: "I am confident of the real mathematics of life, of the success of our partnership for many reasons; the talent of our people".
