Indo-Israeli $500 Million Spike Anti-tank Guided Missile Deal Back on Table

Posted January 19, 2018

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that India has put the Spike missile deal with Israel, which was reported to have been cancelled at the beginning of this months, back on track, Arab48.com reported.

Among those present at the event were Ajay Piramal, Rahul Bajaj, Adi Godrej, Harsh Goenka, Anand Mahindra, Dilip Shanghvi, Ashok Hinduja, Atul Punj and Chanda Kochhar. "We have created new parameters in agriculture through scientific methods in a desert like Israel", said Netanyahu. Our job is to encourage you to innovate.

Besides, there was "a partnership of genuine sympathy" between the peoples of both countries that have civilisations which are very old but who have not met each other in a real sense, he said.

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. He is in Mumbai with his relatives and Samuel, as part of the delegation of Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is wrapping up a visit to India. The Israeli PM will later meet Jewish community and also attend the "Shalom Bollywood" event later in the evening. In turn, the Indian leader said he waited for "my friend" to visit India so they could together inaugurate an entrepreneur incubation centre for start-ups. "A new chapter of friendship and relationship started when Modi visited Israel in 2017", Fadnavis said.

India and Israel can become the best partners. In the past year, the importance of the Jews of India and Indian Jews living in Israel has surged.

Speaking to The Times of Israel, he said leaving the top floors as a reminder of the carnage would allow the tragedy to be used "a springboard for growth". Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, and four of their guests, were among the 166 murdered during the three-day siege.

Love of Israel and hatred of Israel - the reprehensible murderers who, we regret, claimed their victims, did not claim this boy because of love of Israel, of a splendid woman, Sandra. "Bibi loves these meetings with leaders from the Far East", said one senior Israeli diplomat.

Thank you dear Prime Minister for keeping your promise.
