POTUS dinner with world leaders at Nuclear Security Summit

No remarks, just visuals.

Pool -- and a whole lotta foreign photographers and camera-people -- was allowed a brief glimpse at the working dinner. The "dinner table" ran along the circumference of the East Room. In the middle were three big boxes of flowers.

POTUS sat on the opposite side of the room, flanked by Chinese President Xi Jinping on the left and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the right. PM Modi was making an animated point to POTUS as we watched.

VPOTUS arrived as the first wave of photographers was departing. He sat across from POTUS, on the opposite side of the room, and was seated beside leaders from Denmark and Norway.

A travel/photo lid was called at 7:31 pm.
