After delays, Defense Minister Benny Gantz will head to India tonight for a trip marking 30 years of security and diplomatic relations between the countries, his office says.

Gantz was supposed to travel this afternoon, but postponed the flight after opposition lawmakers refused to offset his absence during votes in the Knesset.

During the trip, Gantz is slated to meet with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.

Joining Gantz is Yair Kulas, the head of the Defense Ministry’s weapons exports department; Dror Shalom, who heads the ministry’s Political-Military Bureau; and Yaki Dolef, Gantz’s military secretary.
