India To Purchase Anti-Tank Missiles From Israel Through Govt-To-Govt Deal

Benjamin Netanyahu

India in December voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolution condemning the USA for its decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "The relationship is much stronger than the one vote here and there", Carmon said, but maintained that it was "not a happy" situation when members of the worldwide community did not vote in favour on the issue at the UN.

However, India was among more than 120 countries last month to vote in favor of a resolution calling for the United States to drop its recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"Sometimes it is India that comes to Israel with a request and sometimes Israel comes to India with a request", he said.

"We can not always fulfil those requests and this is why we are two different countries", he told reporters here.

While the Israelis were upset as the withdrawal of RFP came nearly on the eve of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to New Delhi on January 14, South Block officials said they have no objections to the Indian Army purchasing the long range (not line of sight) ATGM from Israel through the G to G route.

The date and place of a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin will be agreed on in the near future, a source in the Israeli embassy in Moscow told TASS on Friday.

The envoy also referred to the personal equation between Modi and Natenyahu.

On the strong bond between the two leaders which was driving the current Indo-Israeli ties, Carmon said the relationship between India and Israel is an "all-weather friendship".

In the same context, he said when it came to Israel, it had backed Justice Dalveer Bhandari's candidature in the International Court of Justice.

Carmon said apart from top Israeli officials, a delegation of 130 businessmen will accompany Netanyahu during his visit.
