Israel's PM says India reconsidering shelved missile deal

While presenting the opportunity for Hindi cinema to take up Israel as a filming destination, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu took up the chance of creating an epic selfie.

Netanyahu told reporters, during his trip to India, that the move is expected to take place within this year, "based on assessment".

Netanyahu said he was deeply moved by the outpouring of support for Israel by the Indian people.

Netanyahu said Israel was excited about partnering with India to increase farmer's income "four to five times".

The Israeli PM was received warmly by the Prime Minister Modi and given Ceremonial reception.

The magazine will cover the essence of the strengthening ties between India and Israel. The two later inaugurated a center for technological innovation and announced a plan for cooperation between start-ups from both countries, which aims to combine Israel's technology knowledge with India's product development capabilities.

Modi made history when he became the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Israel past year. It's not Iran or Syria. I am talking about Switzerland, Singapore and the United States. Singapore makes me lose my sleep. We want Bollywood in Israel. Netanyahu said it was "an important step towards peace" and it was "our goal from Israel's first day".

He said that he has a strong personal friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "And he is doing it through the power of innovation", Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu has also backed Indian double-speak over the situation on the Line of Control (LoC) along the border with Pakistan, as part of his diplomatic efforts to woe the Modi government. "We must come together to define our future", he added. Our ability to have this contact is enormous. "It is unfortunate that at least on the Palestinian side, we haven't seen a reciprocal response". "I believe in India because I know your heritage, your culture, your ingenuity, your creativity, your humanity, your passion".

The state government also signed a memorandum of understanding with an Israeli company to set up a water grid in Marathwada for mitigation of drought.
