India welcomes the National Security Advisor of the State of Israel
In his three day visit, Mr. Joseph Cohen held a series of important bilateral meetings with the Minister for Home Affairs Rajnath Singh, NSA Ajit Doval and senior MEA officials.

Israel has conveyed to its willingness to expand cooperation in all fields and at any level.


This was conveyed by visiting Israeli National Security Advisor (NSA) Mr. Joseph Cohen during his meeting with Indian government authorities, including Home Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh, NSA Mr. Ajit Doval and senior external affairs ministry officials.


The visit of the Israeli NSA comes days after a meeting of Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi with his Israeli counterpart Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu in the US.


Mr. Cohen concluded his three-day visit to Delhi earlier today.


"The visit is taking place a few weeks after the prime ministers from both countries met in New York, and was in many aspects a follow-up to that encounter," said a statement from the Israeli embassy here Wednesday.


During his meetings with Indian officials, Mr. Cohen "offered a panorama of recent global developments, as well as Israel's perspectives on the situation in the Middle East, a region in turmoil, in light of the threat from international terrorism, Iran's nuclear programme, instability and the continuing rise of fanaticism".


"He also discussed with his Indian interlocutors common challenges that India and Israel share as two democracies in their respective regions, as well as solutions to those challenges."


"Israel's NSA conveyed to his Indian colleagues Israel's willingness to expand cooperation in all fields and in any level," the statement said.


Mr. Cohen also participated in the Munich Security Conference core group meeting, organised by Observer Research Foundation, where he was asked to address the opening dinner session.
