He said the video has been released on a day when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is visiting India and that when a foreign leader is on our soil, "there are rules and there are conventions" but the Congress "seems to have lost everything".

He said Netanyahu was bringing with him 130 businesspeople, "which reflects the enthusiasm in Israel to do more business with India".

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and urged for the maintenance of Iran's nuclear deal, the Elysee said on Saturday.

Israel is a major high-tech arms supplier to India, the world's biggest importer of defense equipment.

"Welcome to India, my friend PM @netanyahu!"

Asked about his agreement with Modi on counterterrorism, Netanyahu said the doctrine of counter-terrorism included having intelligence to prevent it.




Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu attend a ceremony at the Teen Murti Memorial in New Delhi to mark the formal renaming of the Teen Murti Chowk as Teen Murti Haifa Chowk on Sunday.

This visit is not just about the substance but also the optics. He is the first Israeli PM to visit India since 2003.

"I don't think one vote affects a general trend you can see in many other votes and everything and these visits", Netanyahu said when asked to comment on India's vote at United Nations against U.S. decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, in an interview to a TV news channel.

Netanyahu also tweeted about this interaction, saying, "We are here in India on a historic visit".

It is Netanyahu's first official trip to the South Asian country. Sources told The Indian Express that the two sides are likely to sign several pacts in the areas of oil and gas, renewable energy, amended protocol for airports, cyber-security, and co-production of films and documentaries, among others. Netanyahu plans to stay in Delhi, Mumbai, and Gujarat, and will be personally accompanied by Modi part of the time, as Netanyahu did on Modi's visit to Israel. He will deliver a speech at the Raisina Dialogue on January 16. The leaders will also discuss a detailed working plan for the next five years, pursuant to the government's decision, led by Prime Minister Netanyahu, to strengthen bilateral ties. The Israeli PM will call on President Ram Nath Kovind later in the day. In Ahmedabad, he will visit Sabarmati Ashram. He will also reach out to Bollywood in an exclusive "Shalom Bollywood" event. He is expected to arrive back in Israel on Friday.
