He is the first Indian PM visiting Israel in 70 years
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has returned New Delhi Sunday morning after two nation visit. He left Hemburg, Germany after completion of the G-20 Summit Saturday evening, where he presented a ten-point agenda for effectively fighting against terrorism.
On Saturday Prime Minister met his Italian counterpart Poalo Gentiloni and South Korean President Moon Jae-in and discussed bilateral ties and global issues. In the sidelines of G-20 summit, PM also met heads of Mexico, Argentina, UK and Vietnam. On Friday PM held bilateral meetings with his Japanese and Canadian counterparts, Shinzo Abe and Justin Trudeau. He held brief chats with IMF chief Christine Lagarde and German Chancellor Angela Markel.
According to External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay, during bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Modi sought her help to bring back “economic offenders.” Liquor baron Vijay Mallya and former IPL Chief Lalit Mohan are presently residing in that country.
PM’s close chemistry with US President was evident when on Saturday, Donald Trump walked up to PM Narendra Modi for an “impromptu interaction.”
Before leaving for Hamburg, PM paid a historical three day visit to Israel, first by any Indian Prime Minister after its creation in 1948. Seven agreements were signed to increase cooperation in the fields of technological research and development, space, water conservation and agriculture. He left for Israel on July 4 and moved on to Germany on July 6 to participate in the G-20 Summit.
