The discussion was a part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart's vision for wide-ranging scientific cooperation between the two countries.
"Defence Research & Development Orgsation, Council of Scientific & Industrial Research held discussions with Head of Israel's Directorate of R&D, Israel's Ambassador Ron Malka & India's Ambassador Sanjeev Singla about high-level scientific cooperation to address #COVID19," the Israel Embassy here said on Twitter.

The Indian government had also helped in the evacuation process of around 500 Israelis in the same month who were stranded amid the nationwide lockdown.
