The three day tour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s of Israel will finish on Thursday. The visit is the first by any Indian prime minister and is being watched closely by local media of both countries. PM Modi and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu gave a joint press statement and have signed seven Memorandums of Understanding, ranging from technology to defence, agriculture, etc. Netanyahu called the relationship between Israel and India “a match made in heaven,” and accepted PM Modi’s invitation to visit India.
While PM Modi visited Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the Israeli media, watching his every move like a hawk, took serious note of his statements from which absence of an opinion on Palestine did not go unnoticed, as well as the euphoria among the masses surrounding his visit.
