Narendra Modi will become the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel, when he arrives on Tuesday.
Modi, who recently said India and the Jewish state share a “deep and centuries-old” connection, is expected to agree military and cyber security deals.
Observers note he will not travel to Ramallah or meet Palestinian leaders, as visiting dignitaries often do.
The visit is seen by some as a turning point in India’s position on Israel.
India and Israel have had diplomatic relations for 25 years, but it has always been a balancing act given India’s sizeable Muslim population.
The two countries have been working closely together for years on counter-terrorism, defence, agriculture and the water and energy sectors.
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has hailed the meeting as a “a very significant step” in strengthening relations, which he said were “on a constant upswing”, reported the Times of Israel.
The Indian leader will also be meeting an Israeli boy, Moshe Holtzberg, whose parents were killed when gunmen stormed a Jewish centre in Mumbai during a 2008 terror attack, reports the BBC.
