India likely to revive missile deal with Israel

General Rawat said the DRDO missiles were yet to be tested and would not be ready till 2022 which could hit India's operational capabilities in the interim

Per the terms of the deal, India is supposed to buy "Spike" anti-tank missiles- with an innovative guided missile system that locks onto a target before the missile is even launched.

At the time, Indian media reported that India's Defence Research and Development Organisation planned to develop and produce its own anti-tank missile domestically.

"On January 1, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wished a Happy New Year to Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian people", the source noted.

But Israel and India have been at pains to emphasise that these events will not alter the bilateral relationship. In Mumbai on Thursday, Mr Netanyahu will meet business leaders, attend a memorial for the victims of the 2008 terror attacks on the city, and appear at Shalom Bollywood, a film industry event.

"On this visit, I intend to strengthen the relations between the two countries even more", Netnayahu said in a statement released by the Prime Minister's office. PM Modi's visit previous year has helped diversify the bilateral relation. They will also visit the iCreate innovation campus and center.
