Agency News

New Delhi, Sep 3 : Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India, scheduled to take place later this month has been put off for the time being, according to media reports in Israel.

".....the Prime Minister (Netanyahu) spoke with India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the two agreed that due to scheduling constraints – the Israeli Prime Minister's visit will take place after the elections in Israel," reports said in a leading Israeli newspaper. The elections are due to be held in Israel on September 17.

According to media reports, Israel is keen to sell India several advanced weapons manufactured by defense industries, such as spy planes, unmanned aircraft, anti-tank missiles, cannons and radar systems.

Earlier this year for separate reasons, Mr Netanyahu cancelled his visit to Japan and also to Russia. (UNI)
