Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the relationship of his country with India is a match made in heaven.
"India and Israel democracies, share love for freedom; We are a match made in heaven," he said at the Indo-Israel Business Summitt in Mumbai on Thursday, where he addressed the captains of the Indian industry at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower in south Mumbai.
"Indo-Israel partnership is reaching unprecedented heights and this is beginning of a wonderful friendship, possibilities are boundless," he said during his visit to the commercial capital.
Before he addressed the summit, he said a power breakfast where top business leaders like Ajay Piramal, Rahul Bajaj, Adi Godrej, Harsh Goenka, Anand Mahindra, Dilip Shanghvi, Ashok Hinduja, Atul Punj and Chanda Kochhar were present.
"Our job is to encourage you to innovate. Partnership between India & Israel is doing wonders. I have a strong personal friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi," said the prime minister.
"Besides, there is 'a partnership of genuine sympathy' between the peoples of both countries - that have civilisations which are very old - but who have not met each other in a real sense," he added.
