Ahead of their one-on-one discussion at the G7 Summit in Germany today, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi ‘met’ with President Obama.
The Iraqi PM walked up to the President, who was engaged in a conversation with Italian Prime Minister Mario Renzi and the President of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde. The Iraqi PM and his translator sat down next to Obama, who continued his conversation as Abadi sat merely a foot away from him.
The three leaders then stood up, prompting Abadi to stand as well. They then walked away without paying any attention to a disgruntled Abadi. His translator then lifted his hands in visible frustration, and they eventually walked away.

Abadi participated in the G7 summit as a member of an outreach group to discuss terrorism and development. The battle against the Islamic State was one of the most important issues discussed by the world leaders and Abadi.
