Israeli Delegation Visits India to Strengthen Strategic Relationship

(Jerusalem Post) Lidar Grave-Lazi - A delegation from the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs was in India this week to strengthen the strategic relationship between Israel and India. The delegation signed a collaborative agreement with Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF), a leading New Delhi-based think tank close to Prime Minister Modi. The parties discussed the security situation in West Asia, including in Pakistan and in Iran. In addition, they analyzed new trends in international terrorism. "Israel and India share many strategic interests, as both countries are dealing with a radical Islamic threat and are engaged in territorial disputes," said Ambassador Dore Gold, president of the Jerusalem Center and former Israeli ambassador to the UN. "This is a tremendous opportunity for strategic dialogue that is open and productive, at a time when there are those trying to portray Israel as isolated and ostracized."
