The meeting between Modi and Bennett comes after External Affairs Minister S.Jaishankar, during his visit to Israel last week, extended an invitation to the Israeli premier on behalf of Modi to visit India.
Modi’s invitation to Bennett grabbed headlines in Israel as it was interpreted as a signal from New Delhi that it was comfortable working with the new government in the Jewish state. As per local media reports, Bennett is likely to visit India next year.
