Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau met for serious, serious, grown up talks on Thursday with Germany's chancellor Angela Merkel.

It was about trade, or war, or peace, or something.

They had a candlelit dinner!

Some might suggest Trudeau's team are just doing this for the memes now.

Well played.

The crack political writing squad at indy100 weren't the only ones to notice the love in.

 

 

 

Trudeau's visit to Germany followed a speech at the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

The prime minister spoke following the passage of trade agreement with the EU, Ceta, which was approved by the parliament on Wednesday, and has been in the making for eight years.

But for now, some suggestive photos of Germany's most successful post-war politician are what we want.

The other world leaders, are probably hurt by the news.

David, you're just yesterday's news now.
