India may revive missile megadeal with Israel

Last month, India supported the Egypt-sponsored vote in UN General Assembly that demanded the USA comply with Security Council decisions against changing the status of Jerusalem.

Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will commence his six-day sojourn in India, six months after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's landmark visit to Israel.

Netanyahu will be leading a high-profile delegation to India, which will comprise 130 businesspersons from 102 Israeli companies drawn from areas like agriculture, water, cyber security, healthcare and security.

"Well I would have preferred a different vote to be frank but I don't think it materially changes the tremendous flowering of relations between India and Israel", said the Israeli premier before starting the tour.

According to an Israeli embassy statement, Mr Netanyahu will arrive in New Delhi on Jan 14 and depart from Mumbai on Jan 19.

On Thursday, Netanyahu will have a power Breakfast with Indian CEOs and attend a business seminar. With the vote happening weeks before Netanyahu's visit, it took many by surprise that India did not abstain from the vote and went ahead and voted for the resolution. After some embarrassing confusion by the defence ministry cancelling a Spike missile contract with Rafael Industries of Israel, sources here said the deal was back on track as a government-to-government contract, in the manner of the Rafale deal.

Both India and Israel are eager to expand bilateral trade, from the present annual value of $4bn to $10bn by 2022. Modi's visit was a very important milestone in that.

Sony Xperia XA2 hands-on
The Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra boasts a familiar Sony design, which isn't the most exciting out there, but it is at least functional. Sony has bumped RAM up to 3GB and doubled the storage to 32GB, so the L2 has nothing to be ashamed of in those departments.

Indias Kalyani group and Israels state-run Rafael Advanced Defence Systems had commissioned a Rs 70 crore production facility near Hyderabad in August a year ago, anticipating that the Israeli firm would bag the contract.
