"Sometimes, it is India that comes to Israel with a request and sometimes Israel comes to India with a request", he said. With the vote happening weeks before Netanyahu's visit, it took many by surprise that India did not abstain from the vote and went ahead and voted for the resolution.

India's defence ministry announced last week that it would buy 131 surface-to-air missiles from Israel.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, June 7, 2016.

Benjamin Netanyahu's visit will involve a series of events that will showcase the growing friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Israeli prime minister.

South Carolina's governor urged his state's Senate on Wednesday to pass legislation created to counter campus antisemitism in time for.

India last month voted for a resolution at the UN General Assembly opposing US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. In November, India cancelled a US$500 million (Dh1.84 billion) order for anti-tank missiles from Israel.

It will be the second visit by an Israeli Prime Minister to India after a gap of 15 years since Ariel Sharon visited New Delhi in 2003. It [the issue of India's negative vote at the UN General Assembly] is being talked about through diplomatic channels between our countries.

He will have a "power breakfast" with Indian business leaders, a business seminar, attend two memorial services for the victims of Mumbai terror attacks at the Taj Mahal hotel and Nariman House and finally a gala event with Bollywood actors, directors and producers.

"On this visit, I intend to strengthen the relations between the two countries even more", Netnayahu said in a statement released by the Prime Minister's office. They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and centre.

Israel and India also differ on China: Israel has welcomed the One Belt, One Road (OBOR) initiative sponsored by China and is eager to participate in the development of networks in the region.

According to a statement by Israeli ambassador to India, Daniel Carmon, India's vote in the United Nations will not mar the bilateral relations. Last year, Israel's 26 Oscar nominees of Hollywood refused to travel to Israel.

The Barak missiles made by Rafael Advanced Defence Systems are to be used for India's first aircraft carrier which is under construction. "I am deeply honoured to stand here today to salute the valiant soldiers, who laid down their lives for the liberation of Haifa during the first World War", Modi had written in the visitors' book.

Netanyahu had accompanied Modi nearly throughout his three-day trip in July of previous year, which is an honour generally reserved for presidents of Israel's close ally the United States.
