Fraud and bribery-accused Israeli PM Netanyahu visits India amidst protests

Asked about his agreement with Modi on counterterrorism, Netanyahu said the doctrine of counter-terrorism included having intelligence to prevent it.

Banjamin Netanyahu will also meet with President Ram Nath Kovind while External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will call on him at his hotel.

"Welcome to India, my friend PM @netanyahu!" During his visit, Netanyahu will meet with Modi multiple times and is also scheduled for face-to faces with India's president and foreign minister.

Netanyahu will leave for Ahmedabad on the fourth day of his tour and visit Sabarmati Ashram.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited the Jewish state in July previous year, becoming the first Indian premier to do so.

Setting aside protocol, Modi received his Israeli counterpart with a hug upon his arrival. In the evening, the Israeli PM will deliver the keynote address at the Raisina Dialogue. Commenting on the ways to strengthen ties, Netanyahu said Israel was developing rapidly and is creating industries "out of thin air".

Daniel Carmon, the Israeli ambassador to India, played down India's vote.

26-year-old Yair Netanyahu came under fire last week after Israeli media made the recording public.

The envoy also referred to the personal equation between Modi and Natenyahu.

Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Yoav Mordechai said in an interview Sunday with the Arabic-language Alhurra news network that Israel has attacked three terror tunnels in the past month and a half.

Giving utmost importance to relations with India, he said "We are strengthening ties between Israel and this important global power".

"We have expelled about 20 000 and now the mission is to get the rest out", Netanyahu said.

"Since we talk about democracies, similar values, similar challenges..., the relationship is so strong between both the countries that our feeling is (that) nothing can reverse it", he said.

The Israeli premier, who is on a maiden visit to India, is accompanied by his wife Sara and a 130-member delegation from various sectors, including cyber, agriculture and defence.

Israel and India through its diplomatic channels handled the decision on Jerusalem by India, but it was the cancellation of the $ 500 million Spike man-portable anti-tank missiles by India on January 2 that dealt a bigger blow to Tel Aviv.

He will be the first Israel PM to visit India since 2003.

"I want you to think about how you would feel if (the press) were trampling all over your children with unmitigated cruelty".
