The harvest of 30 years of Indo-Israeli relations
This study comes at a time when Israel and India are commemorating the thirtieth anniversary of the establishment of their full diplomatic relations, and a gradual Indian bias towards Israeli positions and policies, whether related to the Palestinian issue or regional alliances, amid the rise of multi-billion dollar arms deals, the growth of economic and commercial partnerships, and increased security coordination and intelligence cooperation to confront what they believe to be common enemies.

The Israeli circles do not hide their follow-up on developments that India is going through in preparation for a strategic partnership with it.
