After several delays, Defense Minister Benny Gantz arrives in India for an official visit.

“India and Israel share common challenges of border protection and the war on terror – together we can strengthen the security and economic interests of the two countries,” Gantz tells his counterpart, Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, according to his office.

The two exchange a memorandum of understanding to mark 30 years of security ties between their two countries and agree to build further cooperation.

During their meeting, the ministers discuss international strategic issues, military and industrial cooperation, and joint work on weapons research and development, a statement from Gantz’s office says.
