US President Donald Trump yesterday waved to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and then walked up to him for an “impromptu” chat at the G20 summit.
Arvind Panagariya, India’s Sherpa for the summit, tweeted the “Great moments” from the gathering in Hamburg.
“In an impromptu interaction at G20 Summit, POTUS waves to the PM, walks to him, other leaders gather around. Gr8 moments,” he posted, with a photograph of the two leaders chatting, along with Indonesia’s Joko Widodo.
In another instance of the positive vibes between the two leaders, a video of the G20 leaders’ photo-op is doing the rounds that shows the US President preferring to stand beside Modi.
Trump is seen being welcomed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the leaders gather for the photo-opportunity, then Trump is seen walking past the first row to stand alongside Modi in the second row.
Modi and Trump had met in Washington in June-end for a bilateral meeting, in their first face-to-face interaction.
