India’s objective is to dehyphenate relationships with Israel and Palestine.

India wants to disconnect comparison of  Israel - Palestine issue with kashmir.

India aims to progress defence and developmental understanding with Israel.

India has a desire to assert its leadership role on the multi lateral stage, and to regain its leverage on the Israel Palestine issue.

India is committed to two nation theory solution for Israel Palestine issue.

India’s actions on Israel Palestine issue shall be seen from the above objectives.

The visit of Prime Minister modi to Israel and not visiting Palestine is a break away from tradition. Here the objective is to dehyphenate.

India’s expanding defence ties, counter terrorism cooperation, MOUs in agriculture, water technology reflect need for relations with Israel for India’s development.

 

so, advocating the Israel-palestine peace process is vital for India to restore its influence in west Asia.
