"Israel and Bundelkhand have many geographical similarities. Israel can prove helpful in increasing the availability of water in Bundelkhand. We want to set up a flagship project in Bundelkhand and once this is successful we will replicate this to other parts," the chief minister said.

Uttar Pradesh has the largest police force in the country and we will be happy if Israel can extend support in the modernisation of the force, Adityanath said.

The UP chief minister also discussed with the Israeli ambassador various issues like agriculture, food processing and marketing, defence, drinking water and irrigation.

On the invitation of Israel for the two international conferences in September and November on defence and water, he said Uttar Pradesh will definitely be part of it.

Adityanath said friendship of Israel and India goes back three decades and has scaled new heights in recent times.

"The visits by prime ministers of Israel and India to each other's country has further strengthened ties," he said.

On this occasion, Malka said India is a strategic partner of Israel and his country wants to establish a fellowship programme in Uttar Pradesh.

Israel will also help in every possible way to double the income of the farmers in India, Malka said.
