New Delhi [India], Jan. 14 (ANI): Hours after landing in Delhi, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted in Hindi on Sunday to express happiness over meeting his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for the second time in six months.



On that note, Netanyahu, who apparently was surprised by Modi's "personal welcome" at the airport, dwelled upon bringing the bilateral relationship to "new heights" together.

"Thank you to my good friend, Indian PM Narendra Modi, who surprised me with a personal welcome at the airport upon my arrival in India. Together we will bring the relations between our countries to new heights!" the Israeli PM said in another Twitter post.

The Israeli premier, who is on a six-day visit to India, is accompanied by his wife Sara and a 130-member delegation from various sectors, including cyber, agriculture and defence.

Apart from Delhi, Netanyahu will be visiting Agra, Gujarat and Mumbai, and he will be accompanied by the Indian Prime Minister on extensive portions of his visit.

Earlier in the day, the two prime ministers attended a ceremony to mark the formal renaming of iconic Teen Murti Chowk as Teen Murti-Haifa Chowk. (ANI)
