TEL AVIV, Israel, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Senior Indian defense officials Friday left Israel following a visit in which they discussed arms deals and the fight against terror.

A spokesman for the Indian Embassy in Israel said the visit was routine and related to the ongoing dialog between the two countries' security establishments, the Haaretz Web site reported. The nine-member team met Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and Defense Ministry Director General Amos Yaron.

The Israeli Defense Ministry would not comment.

Israel is India's second largest weapons supplier after Russia, Haaretz noted.

A recent media report said the Indians recently sent an Israel-made drone over the disputed Kashmir region.
