On January 16, Mr. Netanyahu will deliver the keynote address at the Ministry of External Affairs' annual think-tank event, the "Raisina Dialogue".

The new launch comes following Guatemala's vote against the anti-US, anti-Israel vote at the UN Assembly last week. Mr. Netanyahu, who will be accompanied by his wife Sara Netanyahu will also visit the Taj Mahal in Agra. However, the complaint was conveyed via "the right diplomatic channels" rather than at political levels, the diplomatic sources said. An evocative ceremony is also expected at Mumbai's Chabad House, one of the sites of the Mumbai 26/11 terror attack, and where Moshe, a young infant whose parents were killed and his nanny who saved him will fly in from Israel to join Mr. Netanyahu.

Innovation will be the focus of Netanyahu's visit, the first by an Israeli premier since 2003.

Netanyahu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the diplomatic sources said, will build on "chemistry" that was evident when Modi became the first Indian prime minister to visit Israel past year.

In Mumbai, Mr. Netanyahu, whose delegation will include a big business team of about 75-100 companies, will engage with industrialists as well as the film industry.

Despite the United Nations vote, Israel is confident about its global standing. At the summit, both sides will seek a "better understanding of opportunities" India and Israel have in each other's region.

Israeli's lead in areas such as water conservation and management, information technology and counter-terrorism have made it attractive to many formerly hostile governments.

He has invested great efforts to look beyond Israel's traditional allies in Washington and Western Europe and cultivate ties with developing nations that have traditionally been supportive of the Palestinians.
