Ahead of his visit National Security Adviser Ajit Doval visit’s Israel and held talks with Israel’s top leadership in Tel Aviv as a part of preparations.
Doval was on a two-day visit to the country. He landed in Israel on Wednesday and called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his Jerusalem office.
Doval also met his counterpart, Israel’s acting National Security Adviser and Head of the National Security Council, Brig. Gen. (retd) Jacob Nagel. The discussions “revolved around Prime Minister Modi’s expected visit this summer”, officials here told media.
According to sources in the Ministry of External Affairs, the visit could take place somewhere around June.
Netanyahu is also likely to visit India this year. The two nations are celebrating 25 years of diplomatic ties this year. New Delhi formally recognised Israel on September 17, 1950. Embassies were opened in 1992 when full diplomatic relations were established.
Political experts believe that PM Modi’s visit to Israel is against the values of Mahatma Gandhi who had opposed Israel and stood firm for Palestinian’s rights.
