PM Modi congratulates new Israel PM Naftali Bennett

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Naftali Bennett on being sworn in as Israel’s new prime minister and said he looked forward to meeting him and deepening their countries’ strategic partnership.

Bennett was on Sunday sworn in as Israel’s new prime minister, ending Netanyahu’s 12-year hold on power and the political uncertainty that gripped the Jewish nation for months after inconclusive elections.

In his tweets, Modi also conveyed his “profound gratitude” to Benjamin Netanyahu, whose long tenure as Israeli prime minister ended on Sunday.
