In a rather filmy display of twitter diplomacy, India and Israel celebrated world friendship day by exchanging virtual friendship bands this Sunday!
Pictures of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were tweeted by the embassy of Israel with the hit song “Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge” from the Amitabh-Dharmendra starrer Sholay Playing in the Background! The tweet’s caption read,
“May our ever-strengthening friendship and growing partnership touch greater heights,” Israel tweeted.
The Indian head of state responded to the tweet in Hebrew saying, “Thank you and wishing a Happy Friendship Day to Israel’s wonderful citizens and my good friend Netanyahu. India and Israel are time-tested friends. Our bond is strong and eternal. May the friendship between our nations grow and prosper even more in the times to come.”
This has truly been a unique display of increasing diplomatic ties between the two nation-states!
