Grand gatherings of world leaders are a feast for all sorts of commentators watching the interactions between the power players in a bid to get an insight into their relations. An encounter between the Canadian prime minister and the president of Brazil in Japan could hardly have sent a brighter signal, as many suggested.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly found himself in an awkward situation at the meeting table during the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, where he was given a spot between Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro. With tensions running high between Ottawa and Beijing over trade issues and Huawei row, the Canadian politician turned to Xi for a moment, before coming back to Bolsonaro and offering him a handshake, as many commenters suggested.

But the Brazilian president gave Trudeau what seemed to be the cold shoulder, turning his back on him, as he decided to heartily welcome another guest instead. Trudeau and Bolsonaro, however, eventually clasped hands after the latter finished greeting his other neighbour.

Nevertheless, Trudeau’s apparent look of confusion and loss between Xi and Bolsonaro has turned into a fresh Twitter meme.

​Others questioned the seating in Osaka.

​Some suggested other proof that Trudeau is not mingling well at summit.

​However, some had an entirely different take on the situation, suggesting Trudeau was polite and simply wanted to get Bolsonaro’s attention for a person near him.
