India, Israel Now Strategic Partners; Vow To Do More Against Terror Jointly

Jerusalem: India and Israel today elevated their ties to the strategic partnership level, vowing to do "much more together" to combat growing radicalisation and terrorism while pitching for strong action against those financing and providing sanctuaries to terror groups.
The issue of terror and "strategic threats" along with various other topics like cooperation in defence and security, water, agriculture, space and West Asia figured prominently in the talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu here today.
After the wide-ranging talks, the two sides signed seven pacts covering areas like innovation, water conservation, agriculture and space.
During the second of his three-day visit, Modi also met Moshe Holtzberg, the Israeli child who narrowly escaped death in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.
