Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu will begin a six-day visit to India on Sunday, weeks after New Delhi voted against Israel at the UN General Assembly on the issue of Jerusalem.

India's 2014 deal to purchase the anti-tank missiles from Rafael was overturned last November.

"Moshe is accompanying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and there will also be a ceremony at Chabad House", said Israel's Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon. Over time, he continued, he is expecting a change in India's voting on issues relating to Israel at worldwide forums.

Last month, India supported the Egypt-sponsored vote in UN General Assembly that demanded the United States comply with Security Council decisions against changing the status of Jerusalem.

"I would have preferred a different vote, to be frank, but I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel", Netanyahu, addressing the Government Press Office's annual end-of-year reception for the foreign press corps, said in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Bitcoin falls after threat of ban from South Korea
The value of bitcoin has dropped 13.5 per cent following news that South Korea may ban trading of all cryptocurrencies. In its statement from December, the government hinted at the idea of an outright ban of cryptocurrency exchanges .

On the strong bond between the two leaders which was driving the current Indo-Israeli ties, Carmon had said that the relationship between India and Israel is an "all-weather friendship".

"We always want all the worldwide community to vote with us, we are not very happy when some in the global community do not", Carmon said.

It will be the second visit by an Israeli Prime Minister to India after a gap of 15 years since Ariel Sharon visited New Delhi in 2003.

The two statements have put on hold speculations on the outcome of the Israeli PM's visit to India following the recent developments in the past one month. Now, it is learnt that the government is considering buying the missiles through G- to-G route, as per PTI.

"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. In Gujarat, the two Prime Ministers will visit the Center of Excellence in Vadrad and inaugurate a Center of Excellence for date palms in Bhuj via video conference.

Modi will be reciprocating the reception he received from Netanyahu during his visit to Israel in July.

The "road show" is said to be an 8-kilometre drive from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

"The 2019 budget is a social budget focused on the growth of the Israeli economy and the strengthening of the economy", said Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu).

This will be followed by Netanyahu's engagement with Bollywood at an event titled Shalom Bollywood, at which he will meet personalities from Indian cinema and plead with them to shoot their films in Israel. The event is significant as Israel is fighting a worldwide "cultural boycott". Last year, Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd won almost $2 billion in contracts from India.
