External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj called on Israeli President Reuven Rivlin on Monday, the second day of her visit to Israel.

“All in a morning's work. After meeting PM @netanyahu, EAM calls on @PresidentRuvi of Israel at the President's House,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup tweeted.

Earlier on Monday, Sushma Swaraj called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and said India attached highest importance to its bilateral relationship with Israel.

She also paid homage at Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, located near Jerusalem.

Sushma Swaraj, who arrived here on Saturday, went to Ramallah, the administrative capital of Palestine, on Sunday and held bilateral discussions with Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad Al Maliki and also called on President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Indian minister is being accompanied by the Secretary (East) in the external affairs ministry, Anil Wadhwa, and a number of other senior officials of the ministry during her visit to Israel and Palestine.

Sushma Swaraj's visit to Israel comes after the visit of President Pranab Mukherjee in October last year.
