Modi receives Netanyahu at airport

Without confirming whether an agreement for Israeli Spike missiles will be signed during Netanyahu's visit, Carmon said the Spike project is an example of "Israel engaging in Make in India" because it can be implemented through partnership between an Israeli company and Indian firm.

Your visit to India is historic and special.

The visit is likely to be dominated by footage of Modi's warm welcome for Netanyahu. Prime Minister Narendra Modi received him at Delhi airport.

This is the first visit to India by an Israeli Prime Minister since Ariel Sharon came in 2003. In the past, Modi has welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in his home state.

Israeli Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon on Friday down played India's stand at the UN General Assembly over the USA decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in place of Tel Aviv, saying New Delhi's view "cannot influence" Indo-Israel ties. This serves our security, economic, trade and tourism interests, as well as many other areas. "This is a great blessing for the State of Israel", he added.

Netanyahu's first official meeting will be with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj.

He said the visit will focus on the progress made between India and Israel since Modi's visit to Israel last summer, and on shaping the next 25 years of relations between the two countries.
