New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday greeted Israel on its 69th Independence Day.

"Happy 69th Independence Day to the people & Government of Israel. Shalom," he tweeted.

Modi will be visiting Israel, expectedly in July, on his first trip to that country.

Israeli Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon had recently said that Indo-Israel ties were more "visible" after the Modi government came to power and that the Jewish nation respects the change.

"The relations between India and Israel did not start in 2014, but what has changed is the visibility of things that we are doing together. What has changed is the very important and very much respected in Israel," he had said.
