India, Israel And Iran: Three's A Crowd?

Posted July 04, 2017

Becher said that the nature of the relationship between Israel and India since 1992, when the two countries first announced official ties, has followed a natural progression and have blossomed in nearly every sphere.

Though, like previous year, no direct references to the South China Sea or China were included, they called on "all nations to resolve territorial and maritime disputes peacefully and in accordance with global law". Our Prime Minister and Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu have already proved that they are powerful leaders in the world at the moment.

"We are a group of eight members from Karnataka and have already got the pass for the Prime Minister's programme". Over the years, India attempted to create a balance between its ties with Israel and the Palestinians, although it seems that the current visit symbolizes a change in this tendency.

However, Tharoor maintained a positive view and suggested that if the visit is carried out properly, then there is no question of an issue.

The defense deals also include purchasing counter-terrorism technology, something that reflects Israel and India's shared security concerns, despite their geographical distance. At a time when new dynamics are emerging at India's neighbourhood - Pakistan to the west and China to the north and east - it's important for India to turn to the country that can help you in safeguarding country's national interest. He later added that he "earnestly hopes for early resumption of talks between Palestine and Israel leading to the establishment of an independent and sovereign State of Palestine".

In 2015, India abstained from a vote at the UN Human Rights Council on alleged war crimes during Israel's 2014 war on Gaza, causing shock among some Palestinian Authority officials. "To go without giving clear position can lead to hard situations", Khurshid told ANI.

"In this visit, your Make in India initiative, meets my Make with India policy".

In an effusive welcome to Narendra Modi, the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the country, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said "Apka swagat hai mere dost".

Prime Minister Modi will today begin his two nation tour starting from Israel.

In their brief prepared speeches, they vowed to give a push to the bilateral relationship in all aspects and jointly deal with the common threats like terrorism. My visit is about the strength of our societies and our strong partnership.

For the first time since India established diplomatic relations with Israel in 1992, an Indian prime minister traveled to Israel.

PM Modi made the arrival statement personal as he spoke about the sacrifice made by Mr Netanyahu's brother 41 years ago in Operation Entebbe.
