In particular, Bennett recently met with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken. A statement from Bennett’s office said, “Bennett, who met with Israeli and Arab diplomats on the sidelines of a ‘historic conference’ on Sunday, is feeling better and has completed his homework.”
This is Bennett’s first visit to India since becoming prime minister in June last year. The visit aims to expand cooperation between the two countries in the fields of innovation and technology, security and cyber, and agriculture and climate change. “I am delighted to be on my first official visit to India at the invitation of my friend, Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, and together we will continue to take the relationship between our countries forward,” Bennett said.

“Modi has resumed relations between India and Israel and it has historical significance,” he said. We have two unique cultures – the relationship between Indian culture and Jewish culture is deep and they are based on deep understanding and fruitful cooperation.
In October last year, on the sidelines of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Prime Minister Modi invited his Israeli counterpart Bennett to visit India, the statement said.
“This visit will reaffirm the important relationship between the two countries and their leaders and will mark the 30th anniversary of the establishment of relations between Israel and India,” the statement said. The media adviser said the visit was aimed at further strengthening the strategic alliance between the two countries and expanding bilateral ties.
During his visit, Bennett will also meet with his Indian counterparts, senior government officials and members of the local Jewish community. The full itinerary and additional details of the tour will be released separately, the statement said. India recognized Israel in 1950, although full diplomatic relations between the two countries were established in 1992.
