Modi Discusses India-Israel Cooperation with Bennett

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he held talks with his Israeli counterpart Naftali Bennett and discussed India-Israel cooperation in various areas.

Bennett had a plan to visit India on April 3 to celebrate the completion of 30 years of diplomatic relations, but it was postponed after Bennett had tested positive for COVID-19 on March 28.

“Was happy to speak with PM Bennett and to know that he is recovering well. We discussed recent global events, and also reviewed India-Israel cooperation in various areas. I look forward to welcoming him in India very soon to continue our discussions,” Modi said in a tweet message.

Replying to Modi’s tweet, Bennett said that he was happy to talk to PM Modi and that he is looking forward to “meet Modi soon.”

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz had earlier also postponed his planned official visit to India in the wake of last Sunday’s shooting attack in the central city of Hadera that left two police officers dead.
