    Israel may partner with the state for the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit-2015, said Israeli Ambassador to India Alon Ushpiz after a closed-door meeting with Chief Minister Narendra Modi here Wednesday .

    "It is quite possible that we might partner with Gujarat for the next Vibrant Gujarat Summit in 2015. We have never had a shadow in this friendship with Gujarat and are quite at home here," said Ushpiz.

    After mangoes, Israeli technology will be used in growing vegetables in the state as Israel plans to start a centre of excellence for vegetables. "The Gujarat government will implement this technology and you will adapt it in growing of vegetables... We are also interested to cooperate with the state on recycling of sewage as we are a nation that recycles almost 80 per cent of its sewage back in to agriculture. Water management and renewable and thermal energy are other sectors that we interested in engaging with Gujarat," he added.

    On the controversy over a city-based garment shop named 'Hitler', he said, "I come from a family that has lost many members in the Holocaust. We are happy that action was taken swiftly and the name was changed."

    I think the relations with Israel have moved in the open, but now the Indian Government has to take the next step in improving the political exchange. We need more state visits not just by the Defence Minister but by the Prime Minister also.

    We cannot be hostage to a perceived domestic political equation.

    What good would that achieve?
    India's relation with Israel is as strong as it needs to be and GoI managed to achieve that without antagonizing the Arabs, so why not continue the same.
