It said the two leaders discussed in detail the recent geo-political developments, including the situation in Ukraine and also reviewed the ongoing bilateral cooperation initiatives.

“Prime Minister conveyed his eagerness to welcome H.E. Bennett in India at an early date,” the PMO said.

"Was happy to speak with PM @naftalibennett and to know that he is recovering well. We discussed recent global events, and also reviewed India-Israel cooperation in various areas. I look forward to welcoming him in India very soon to continue our discussions," he said.
