The problem for Israel is that other competitors, too, are willing to shift base to India to get a slice of the huge armaments market that India has become. Meanwhile, Israel on Friday also indicated it was disappointed with the recent move of the Indian Government to vote in favour of a United Nations resolution opposing the decision of the USA to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's Capital but said ties were too strong to be affected by one decision. Netanyahu will lead an Israeli trade delegation comprised of some 130 business leaders to negotiate defense deals.
