India's Foreign Minister likely to visit Israel in January
15/12/2014
Israel is hoping that the visit by Sushma Swaraj will pave the way for a visit by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi next year.

Foreign minister Ms. Sushma Swaraj is likely to visit Israel in January 2015 in what will be only the second visit by an Indian foreign minister to the country in over a decade. Official sources said the political upheaval in Israel, which saw PM Benjamin Netanyahu recently dissolving Parliament and calling for polls in March, was not likely to impact Swaraj's visit to the country in January 2015.

 

 

 

With both countries now more open about bilateral relations, including their defence and security cooperation, Israel is hoping that the visit by Ms. Swaraj will pave the way for a visit by PM Narendra Modi next year.

 

 

 

If that happens, Mr. Narendra Modi will become the first Indian PM to visit Israel since the 2 countries established diplomatic relations in 1992. A top Israeli government source told this newspaper in Jerusalem recently that a visit by an Indian PM was now not "as unlikely as it was until early this year".
