The MoUs signed between the two nations are in relation to: Cooperation in Electric Propulsion for small satellites, plan of cooperation regarding cooperation in Atomic clocks, save water utility reform in India, water conservation in India, cooperation in GEO-LEO Optical Link, India-Israel Development Cooperation, along with the setting up India-Israel Industrial R&D and Technological Innovation Fund. "We have witnessed terror, so has Israel", Modi said, vowing to increase Indian cooperation with Israel in a range of fields, notably water and agriculture technology, defense, and counter-terrorism.

India and Israel on Wednesday signed seven agreements, including three on space cooperation, following delegation-level talks headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu.

Speaking after signing a series of agreements with Netanyahu, Modi said the leaders had "agreed to do much more together to protect our strategic interests", including focusing on combating "growing radicalization in the region and West Asia".

The Israeli prime minister is expected to accompany Modi for most of his trip, a treatment normally reserved only for top level guests such as the USA president.

Rivlin, for his part, warmly welcomed Modi, calling him "one of the greatest leaders of a democracy in the world at this time".

Modi also said his visit was an opportunity to "compose a new chapter in our ties" and "jointly venture towards new horizons of engagement". Your visit to Israel is a testament to that. Immediately after Modi landed in Tel Aviv airport and received, Netanyahu said, "We have waited 70 years for you".

In an earlier statement, the Sierra Club, an environmental conservation group, said, "America's parks, and the people and economies they support, need real funding, not a giant fake check".

"India is a growing economic powerhouse with a large market and talent pool".

Israel has quietly supplied India with arms, including during the 1999 Kargil War with Pakistan.

In April, state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries said India would buy almost $2 billion worth of weapons technology, making it the military exporting giant's largest ever defence contract. This would strengthen ties between the two countries.

Modi said the discussions extended beyond bilateral projects to "how our cooperation can help the cause of global peace and stability".

India is now the world's fastest growing major economy, and Modi has sought to cement that status by drawing in more foreign investment, introducing a "Make In India" strategy that is encouraging manufacturers to do business in Asia's third-largest economy. The visit is expected to take place later this year.
