* On July 4, during his visit to Israel, PM Narendra Modi said, ““It is my singular honour to be the first ever Indian Prime Minister to undertake this groundbreaking visit to Israel… My visit celebrates the strength of centuries-old links between our societies. Based on the bonds, our partnership has maintained a strong and sustained upswing since the establishment of full diplomatic relations 25 years ago. The people of Israel have built a nation on democratic principles. They have nurtured it with hard work, grit and spirit of innovation. You have marched on, regardless of adversity, and converted challenges into opportunity. India applauds your achievements.”
* “Israel is among the leading nations in the field of innovation,water and agriculture. India has suffered first hand the violence and hatred spread by terror, so has Israel. PM and I agreed to do much more together to protect our strategic interests and also cooperate to fight growing radicalization. Sure rest of my stay would be equally exciting. Let me take this opportunity to invite you and your family to India,” PM Modi said on second-day of his visit to Israel.
* “There are various forms of terrorism. Different names but same ideology. Daesh and Al-Qaeda in the Middle East; LeT, JeM and Haqqani network in South Asia; Boko Haram in Nigeria, but their basic ideology is the same. Naam anek soch ek (Many names but the same thought and ideology). The basis of their ideology is hatred and killing of people,” PM Modi told G20 leaders in Hamburg, Germany on July 7.
