  • India Inks 9 MoUs With Israel To Boost Bilateral Ties

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu landed in New Delhi on Sunday (Jan 14) to begin a historic trip to cement bilateral relations with India, having left behind a scandal embroiling his son back home.

On December 20, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) voted 128 to 9 to condemn the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of Israel.

We are not aggressive nations but very committed to making sure that no one can commit aggression against either one of us, he said.

India had last month joined 127 other countries to vote in the UNGA in favour of a resolution opposing the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
