Fact Check: Did PM Modi Ignore President Biden’s Handshake At The G7 Summit? Here’s The Truth


The G7 Summit held at Borgo Egnazia, a luxury resort and spa in Savelletri of Fasano, Italy, from June 13-15. This event brought together leaders from the seven member states, along with the president of the European Council and the president of the European Commission, who represented the European Union. Against the backdrop, a video has gone viral on social media, claiming that Prime Minister Narendra Modi ignored US President Joe Biden’s handshake during the summit.

The Facebook post reads: बाईडेन से हाथ न मिलाकर मोदी जी ने अमेरिका को उसकी औकात दिखा दी हमारे चुनावों में दखल अंदाजी का नतीज़ा तो औकात दिखादी दुनिया के सामने…. (English translation: By not shaking hands with Biden, Modi showed America its place. This is the result of meddling in our elections; he showed their place in front of the world.)

NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be false.

With a keyword search, the NM team found a video published by Firstpost‘s YouTube channel on June 15, titled: “Hello From Team Meloni: Selfie of PM Modi & Giorgia Meloni Goes Viral | PM Modi at G7 Summit 2024.”

The viral clip appears at the beginning of the video, clearly showing a support staff member guiding PM Modi towards a stage where he is greeted by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

Below is the comparison between the G7 staff member in the video  and Joe Biden.

Therefore, we an conclusively say that the viral video does not depict PM Modi ignoring a handshake with US President Joe Biden.
