India's Prime Minister Modi Embarks On Historic Visit to Israel

"In two or three years we will pass Japan's per capita GNP", Netanyahu said.

Talking about the "common threat" of terrorism, Prime Minister Modi said, "Alongside building a partnership of shared economic prosperity, we are also cooperating to secure our societies against common threats such as terrorism".

Sandra Samuels, the courageous Indian nanny, saved Moshe during the attack and was awarded an honorary citizenship by the Government of Israel so that she can stay with Moshe.

"We love India, admire your culture, history, democracy and commitment to progress..." Addressing the media, PM Modi emphasised on common challenges and the aims to defeat forces of terror.


"In the last few years the world has seen the India Israel relationship come out from the perception of just Defense related activities to showcasing a fantastic connection in agricultural, educational, entrepreneurial & cultural cooperation". "My friend, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, welcome to Israel", Netanyahu wrote on his Facebook account.

Netanyahu has described Modi's visit as "historic", saying it would "deepen co-operation in a wide range of fields - security, agriculture, water, energy - basically in nearly every field Israel is involved in".

He also welcomed Modi in Hebrew. The Israeli Prime Minister Netayanahu has given a warm welcome to Modi. Commenting on the approach of Zionist Camp MK Amir Peretz - one of the candidates in Tuesday's Zionist Camp primaries - Netanyahu said that he had "heard that Peretz spoke to economists who said that if Israel does not raise taxes, the economy will go into a deficit". "My visit celebrates the strength of centuries old links between our societies".

In his welcome speech, Modi said the people of Israel had built a nation on democratic principles and marched forward despite adversarial conditions. "As such, we must resolutely oppose the evils of terrorism, radicalism and violence that plague our time", he said.


"India counts Israel among its important partners. the need to rely on science, technology, innovation and higher technical education to overcome developmental challenges are common to both of us", the Prime Minister added. The victory of the BJP and the advent of Modi as prime minister brought about a sea change in Indian attitude.

In a special gesture, Netanyahu will receive Modi when he arrives at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport.

The two leaders then travelled to the Holocaust Memorial at Yad Vashem, where Modi paid tribute to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazi regime, before a meeting over dinner.
