In his remarks, Netanyahu said the partnership between India-Israel is doing wonders and how he had "a strong personal friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi". "We want Bollywood in Israel", Netanyahu said. "That is competition", said Netanyahu.
The Indian Defence Ministry had recently cancelled the Spike Anti Tank Missile Deal, worth $500 million, as stated by Rafael, the state defence contractor from Israel.
Reports are coming that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu was received at the airport by PM Modi after that they both visited the Ashram together. Israel has such agricultural centers around the world, but India - with more than 30 - hosts more than any other country.
However, Vivek also shared a click of him and wife Priyanka Alva Oberoi with the Israeli PM on his Twitter handle. Speaking at the event, the prime minister said, "We believe in Bollywood". The roadsides were adorned with huge banners bearing the photos of the two leaders, with crowds waving as they passed by. He was addressing people at the Chabad House, or Nariman House, in south Mumbai, after meeting 11-year-old Moshe Holtzberg whose father Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and mother Rivka were killed along with six others there during the terror strike over nine years ago.
"Israel has proved to the world that commitment of the people, not size of the nation takes the country forward".
In a Reuters interview, Trump was asked about Netanyahu's comment and said, "By the end of the year?" "This expresses a personal and national tie, an worldwide link which is incredibly powerful".
"I've seen it many times", he said. India's bureaucratic maze makes it hard to reach a deal quickly, according to a senior Israeli government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because talks are ongoing. "India is incredible because it has two cultures that had been distant but after thousands of years have met in a way that's never happened in history".
Mr Netanyahu also on Wednesday became the second global leader to undertake a mega 8-km roadshow alongside Prime Minister in his home state of Gujarat.
He also called for an "efficient" air link between Israel and India to emulate recently established flights between Tel Aviv and San Francisco, to service the well-established technology industries in both regions.
