Jews in India have never witnessed antisemitism like in some other countries: Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in New Delhi on Sunday and received a warm welcome by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Mr Netanyahu paid homage to soldiers who died in Haifa of World War 1 at Teen Murti Chowk by Army Chief, Bipin Rawat. PM Modi then hosted a private dinner for the Israeli leader. The two had built a warm rapport during PM Modi’s visit to Israel last year. Mr Netanyahu is on a six-day visit and will visit PM Modi’s home state, Gujarat and Mumbai.

Prime Minister Netanyahu and PM Modi held delegation-level talks and delivered a joint statement. Later in the day, the Israeli leader will call on President Ram Nath Kovind. Mr Netanyahu will end the day with the India-Israel Business Summit.

During his press conference with Indian Prime Minister today, Netanyahu said Jews in India have never witnessed antisemitism like in some other countries, this is a tribute to India’s great civilization, tolerance and democracy.
