Gantz to make delayed India jaunt June 1

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz is heading to India on June 1 to sign a “special security declaration” marking 30 years of security relations between the countries, his office says.

The trip was initially meant to take place in March, but Gantz delayed it due to a series of deadly terror attacks.

His office does not immediately detail the schedule of the trip, or when he is expected to return.
