Israel has offered to help India in its major project to clean up the Ganges River and a delegation of experts will head to the South Asian country in August to assess the areas of the river that the country can contribute to, Indian daily newspaper The Hindu reported on Monday. 

Israeli officials have met their counterparts in the Indian Union Ministry for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, headed by Uma Bharti, to offer help in water conservation and the Ganga cleaning program, The Hindu reported. 

“The advantage we have is that we have a wide range of solutions for problems; there are specific problems in different states and our experts have solutions. We are pushing for more government-to-government agreements,” The Hindu quoted the spokesperson of the Israeli Embassy, Ohad Horsandi as saying.
