Sushma Swaraj meets Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv, says potential of India-Israel ties is 'much more'

Tel Aviv: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Monday, met Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv and discussed a wide range of issues.

Addressing a joint press conference, Swaraj said, “Our bilateral cooperation has developed well in number of areas over past decades, but potential of our relationship is much more. The potential of our relations is much more, we are two vibrant democracies.”

On his part Netanyahu said, “We admire India, and by working together we can do a lot for each other and for the world.”

Swaraj will also meet President Reuven Rivlin, Deputy Foreign Minister of Israel Tzipi Hotovely (Netanyahu has retained foreign ministry portfolio with himself) and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon.

The other important event in Swaraj's itinerary will be to address Indian Community in Israel later today.

Many in Israel see Swaraj's visit as a "build up" to the much-anticipated visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the region.

Netanyahu and Rivlin are also expected to visit India after having received invitations from Mukherjee in October during his visit to the region - the first by India's Head of State to the region.
