Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to embark on six-day India

Launching a scathing attack on the upcoming tour of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, CPI (M) mouthpiece People's Democracy, in an edit published on Thursday, said that he was not welcome in India.

There will be a special focus on business and trade during Netanyahu's visit.

The Russian president and the Israeli prime minister last met in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi on August 23, 2017, while on March 10, 2017, they held talks in Moscow.

"iCreate" was formally launched in 2011 by Modi when he was the chief minister. India has a long and wide ranging defence cooperation with Israel.

Informed sources in Jerusalem said that this relates to sharing of knowledge in the field of homoeopathy and ayurveda that have been gaining popularity in Israel over the last few years.

Reciprocating the warm reception extended to him by Netanyahu, Modi is likely to spend a lot of time with his Israeli counterpart during the trip.

Netanyahu will arrive at around noon on Sunday, and meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. It was decided that both Prime Ministers should exchange visits.

Official engagements begin on Monday: a guard of honour at Rashtrapati Bhavan, wreath-laying at Rajghat, and meetings with President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu.

Netanyahu, accompanied by his wife Sara, would be travelling to Agra to see the Taj Mahal on Tuesday and return to Delhi to participate in the Raisina Dialogue.

The two leaders, who hit it off during Modi's visit to Israel in July previous year, the first by an Indian prime minister since the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1992, would visit two centres of excellence and inaugurate another such facility.

The "road show" is said to be an 8-kilometer drive from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

In Mumbai, Netanyahu will highlight the importance of fighting terrorism.

In Mumbai, Prime Minister Netanyahu will meet Jewish community leaders and select members of the Indian business community.
