Congratulations to my friend Netanyahu and the Israeli people on their 75th anniversary of independence, the prime minister wrote in a tweet. “Mazel Tov!”
Eli Cohen, Israel’s foreign minister, had earlier received congratulations from external affairs minister S. Jaishankar.
Israel and India are allies on a strategic level. On September 17, 1950, India declared that it had recognised Israel. The Jewish Agency opened an immigration office in Mumbai shortly after that.
According to a statement from the MEA, India and Israel will commemorate 30 years since their bilateral ties were upgraded to full diplomatic status.
India and Israel have cordial and forward-thinking political relations. On November 2, 2021, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in Glasgow, United Kingdom, outside the “UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26).”
The Alternate Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Israel, Yair Lapid, invited India’s External Affairs Minister, S. Jaishankar, to visit Israel in October 2021.
Strategic cooperation was established between India and Israel as a result of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic trip there between July 4 and 6, 2017, which was the first time an Indian prime minister had ever done so. On January 14–19, 2018, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was Israel’s then prime minister, paid a second visit to India.
In October 2015, Pranab Mukherjee, who was then India’s president, made a state visit to Israel, and in November 2016, Reuven Rivlin, who had previously served as president of Israel, both visited India.
All areas of cooperation between India and Israel, such as water, agriculture, counterterrorism, and defence, have developed bilateral dialogue forums.
In December 2020, the 16th Foreign Office Consultations were held, according to a MEA announcement.
On Tanzania’s Union Day, EAM Jaishankar also sent greetings to the nation’s leadership and people.
Best wishes to Tanzania’s government and its citizens on their Union Day, as well as to FM Dr. Stregomena Tax, he wrote in a tweet. Our two-way relationship’s quick expansion simply serves to emphasise how enormously promising it is.”
