Foreign Minister Eli Cohen is set to take off for India Monday night, where he will meet in New Delhi with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar during his three-day visit.
He will also meet the agriculture minister and national security adviser.
Cohen will sign agreements on foreign workers in construction and elder care, and on water technology.
He is bringing a business delegation of some 36 Israeli representatives, and will open the Israel-India Economic Forum.
The final day of the visit will be in Mumbai, where Cohen will visit the Chabad center that suffered the lethal terrorist attack in 2008.
Cohen says that the visit “will deepen the strategic partnership with one of the world powers.’” He adds that India can play a key role in expanding the Abraham Accords.
