In honor of Friendship Day, Israel wished India a happy holiday and received the same in return.

"Happy #FriendshipDay2019 India!" The Israeli embassy in India wrote on Twitter. "May our ever strengthening friendship & #growingpartnership touch greater heights."

Modi replied to the message, writing in Hebrew, "Thank you. I wish a happy Friendship Day to the wonderful citizens of Israel and to my friend [Benjamin Netanyahu]."

"India and Israel proved their friendship throughout the ages," he continued. "Our relationship is strong and everlasting. I wish that our countries' friendship will grow and bloom even more in the future."

"Thank you, my friend, India PM @narendramodi," Netanyahu responded. "I could not agree with you more."

"The deep connection between Israel and India is rooted in the strong friendships between Israelis and Indians," he continued. "We cooperate in so many areas. I know our ties will only strengthen in the future!"

India-Israel relations have improved in recent years. Diplomatic officials told The Jerusalem Post that Netanyahu has initiated a visit in coming months, most probably in September, to India.

Netanyahu and Modi have a long-standing strong relationship, oftentimes messaging one another like such on Twitter.
