Opinion | The Importance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Visit To Israel

Prime Minister Narendra Modi kickstarts his three-day state visit to Israel on Tuesday marking a “historic milestone” in both the countries’ bilateral relations. What started as a diplomatic outreach 25 years ago by former Prime Minister Morarji Desai has been now realised by PM Modi, who became the first Indian PM to visit the country. In a statement to the media, Netanyahu said: “Modi’s visit is further expression of the state of Israel’s military, economic and diplomatic strength and is a very significant step in strengthening relations between the two countries.”
