PM Modi-Giorgia Meloni Bonhomie meet at G7 summit NDTV

New Delhi, June 15, 2024: A selfie and a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Italian counterpart Giorgia Meloni during the G7 summit have gone viral on social media.

In the picture, taken on Friday by Ms Meloni on the sidelines of the summit that is being held in Italy’s Apulia, the two leaders can be seen smiling. While in the video, they can be seen waving at the camera with Ms Meloni saying "Hello from the Melodi team".
