When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu travels to New Delhi next month, he will bring a special gift for his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi — a Gal-Mobile water desalinization and purification jeep.

Modi rode in such a vehicle with Netanyahu on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea when he visited Israel this past summer.

According to the Hebrew news site Walla, the gesture — which was approved by the Foreign Ministry — will cost Israel around 390,000 shekels (roughly $111,000 dollars).

Israel and India are currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of the official establishment of diplomatic relations. Ties between the two countries have flourished in recent years and Modi’s tour of Israel in July was the first ever by a sitting Indian prime minister.
