Prime Minister Modi, who was in Germany on a two-day visit from Sunday for the summit of the G7, was received by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz upon his arrival at Schloss Elmau, the picturesque venue of the summit in southern Germany.

The bonhomie between PM Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron was on full display as they hugged and briefly chatted after the group photo. As the G7 leaders went inside the summit venue, the two leaders continued with their discussion and went inside together.

PM Narendra Modi also tweeted the group photo along with a caption that read: At the G7 Summit with world leaders. This was the first meeting between Modi and Biden after they met in Japan for the Quad summit in May. The two leaders are also scheduled to meet in July for the I2U2 virtual summit of the quadrilateral economic forum comprising India, Israel, the UAE and the US.

At the end of the summit, PM Modi left for UAE on Tuesday morning.
