When it comes to another leader from Russia, then, President Vladimir Putin shocked everyone, when in an interview with the Financial Times, before the start of the summit, he said that “liberalism is obsolete”.
He had emphasized on preventing immigration in the countries, as according to him it had infringed on people’s rights.
“The liberal idea has starting eating itself,” Putin said during the interaction with the reporters in Osaka.
When it comes to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, then he had a good meeting with Donald Trump, in which the latter praised him for his huge victory in this year’s Lok Sabha elections, and the way BJP registered a massive win. The two also talked on other issues related to international trade.
Similarly, there was also a meeting between Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, the president of China. But at the summit, they didn’t really focus much on their current trade wars, as was expected from the two.
And last but not least, the most interesting moment from the summit came when on Saturday, at the end of the event, Trump took to his Twitter profile and tweeted about his meetings with all the other leaders. This tweet was important because he also invited North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for a meeting at the Border/DMZ (demilitarized), just to shake hands.
After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 28 June 2019
And everyone knows what happened after that, as both Trump and Kim met each other in North Korea, at the DMZ, where they posed for photographs while shaking hands together.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
