He would then lead the bilateral dialogue at Hyderabad House where he will also have a one-on-one discussion with Modi.

Carmon said 11-year Moshe Holtzberg will also accompany Netanyahu and participate in a function at the Chabad House in Mumbai.

The road show is said to be an 8-kilometre drive from the airport to the Sabarmati Ashram.

After their initial greeting, the two leaders held their joined hands aloft as they posed for the cameras.

The prime minister's entourage includes the largest-ever delegation of Israeli businesspeople with representatives from the agriculture, water technology, cybersecurity, defense, health, and food industries.
