His visit will take place eight days before the re-election in his country. After Netanyahu failed to form a coalition government, Israeli lawmakers had recommended dissolving the Nesset (parliament) by 74 votes against 45 in May and holding unprecedented re-election.

Netanyahu became the longest-serving person as Israel's prime minister on July 20. Before him, the record was named after David Ben Guerreen, the first prime minister of the Jewish country. At present, Netanyahu is facing a tough political challenge. Pre-poll surveys show his Likud party's position in a shambles. Sources said the Prime Minister's Office had suggested a date of August 25 for Netanyahu's visit, but the Israeli side insisted on doing it in early September, finally setting september 9, exactly 16 years later, when Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon visited India. He had made history by becoming the first Israeli prime minister to do so.
