Taking India-Israel defence relationship further, Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya'alon would be visiting India, with a high profile delegation to visit the Bangalore Aero India 2015, the aerospace and aviation exhibition to be held in Bengaluru from 18 to 22 February.

He will also hold talks with Indian defence minister Manohar Parrikar.

Ya'alon would inaugurate the Israeli defence pavilion at the Aero India 2015, where 15 Israeli companies are expected to exhibit their goods, with hundreds of Israeli representatives participating in the exhibition, said The EconomicTimes.

The Israeli defence minister is joined by Director General Maj Gen (Res) Dan Harel and CEOs of various Israeli defence firms.

"The visit of Minister is an important event and the manifestation of the growing relations between the two countries across the board, including in defence cooperation," Israeli Ambassador Daniel Carmon said in a statement.

In recent times, India has considerably expanded its defence supply relationship with Israel.
