Ac­cord­ing to spec­u­la­tive re­ports, Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s forth­com­ing visit to Is­rael will in­clude sign­ing of ma­jor new de­fence deals, in­clud­ing the pro­cure­ment of an air de­fence sys­tem for the In­dian Navy. Is­raeli Am­bas­sador Daniel Car­mon stated that “In­dia, Is­rael re­la­tions are big enough. The visit, when it takes place, will be very very im­por­tant and will be one of the most im­por­tant vis­its that Is­rael has wit­nessed in many many years. Is­rael has very good re­la­tions with In­dia and the re­la­tion­ship has var­i­ous facets in­clud­ing de­fence.” Barak-8 air de­fence mis­sile sys­tems for the Navy, apart from pro­cure­ment of Spike anti-tank mis­siles for the In­dian Army are ex­pected to be con­firmed dur­ing this visit, which co­in­cides with the es­tab­lish­ment of 25 years of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries.
