President Trump Greets Putin With Very Firm Handshake at G20
0

President Trump greeted Russian President Vladimir Putin with quite the handshake during the opening day of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan. The two leaders met for a short photo opportunity with the press before a planned private meeting. Their closed-door meeting reportedly lasted about an hour.

The two-day summit is the 14th assembly of the G20. The international forum consists of 19 countries and the EU. The gathering regularly includes representatives from central banks. The combined economies of the G20 account for nearly 90% of the gross world product.

The purpose of the organization is to promote economic stability. This year’s G20 summit focused on eight central themes: global economy, trade and investment, innovation, environment and energy, employment, women’s empowerment, development, and health.

Judging by President Trump’s tweets, he seems pleased with how this year’s G20 summit has played out so far. He even invited North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to a meeting at the DMZ.
