Prime Minister Naftali Bennett speaks by phone with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi after postponing his planned trip to India this weekend because he contracted COVID-19.

According to a statement from Bennett’s office, the premier thanked Modi for condemning the recent deadly terror attacks in Israel. The two also discussed “global and regional issues, including the Iranian nuclear issue,” the statement says.

The two also agreed to work on finding an alternative date for Bennett’s trip, which was scheduled to highlight 30 years of official bilateral ties.
