During the visit, Gantz will sign a letter of agreement marking 30 years of diplomatic and defense ties between the two countries, according to the statement.

His office announced on March 28 that he decided to delay his visit to India, a day after a deadly terror attack in Hadera by two ISIS-affiliated gunmen who claimed the lives of two Israeli Border Police officers.

This time around, Gantz will meet India’s Defense Minister Rajnath Singh “with the aim of expanding and deepening cooperation between the establishments. Additional meetings will be held with senior officials,” the defense minister’s office said at the time.
