Subject: VPOTUS pool report #3

Pool was brought upstairs around 6pm to where VPOTUS and President Erdogan were meeting. We held in a large room with a table set for the broader meeting with full delegations. That meeting didn't happen because VPOTUS spent the whole time in the smaller meeting with Mr. Erdogan. VP office says staff for VPOTUS and Mr. Erdogan met separately.

When pool was brought into the room where VPOTUS and Mr. Erdogan had been meeting, they were posing for a photo with their spouses. Then with Naomi Biden and one of Mr. Erdogan's daughters joined for a photo. Dr. Biden had earlier walked by pool with Mr. Erdogan's wife, followed by Naomi Biden walking alongside Mr. Erdogan's daughter. Unclear if they had been spending time together before the photo.

Lastly Mr. Biden and Mr. Erdogan posed for a photo just the two of them. When pool was ushered out the families were still talking.

Motorcade was rolling to the airport at 6:21pm.
