On Monday, world leaders came together and posed for a photo during the opening ceremony of the 31st ASEAN Summit in Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila, Philippines.
In a photograph taken at the event, we see Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen, Indonesia's President Joko Widodo, U.S. President Donald Trump, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among other world leaders, all of them dressed in business suits. Except for the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, who looked dapper in his desi attire.
