Netanyahu recalls historic visit of Modi to Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fondly recalled the visits of US President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi terming them historic. “Of these many visits, two were truly historic. In May, President Trump became the first American president to include Israel in his first visit abroad. President Trump stood at the Western Wall, the foot of Temple Mount, where the Jewish people, or rather the Jewish people’s temples, stood for nearly 1,000 years,” he said. And when the President touched those ancient stones, he touched our hearts forever, Netanyahu said. In July, Netanyahu said, Modi became the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Israel+ . He also shared with the world leaders his meeting with the Indian premier. “You may have seen the pictures. We were on a beach in Podera. We rode together in a jeep outfitted with a portable desalinisation device that some thriving Israeli entrepreneur invented. We took off our shoes, waded into the Mediterranean, and drank seawater that had been purified only a few minutes earlier,” Netanyahu said.
