Indian Prime Minister yet again missed a chance to shake his firm hands with the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel. After his unsuccessful quest for the handshake in 2015, while his Germany visit and three other European nations, Modi missed his consecutive second chance to greet the German official.

A press conference was held in Germany, where Prime Minister Modi along with Chancellor Merkel issued a joint statement on climate change as well as Indo-German bilateral relations. At the end of this joint statement, Modi turned towards Merkel with his hand extended towards Angela Merkel to greet her with a handshake, and just like the time before, the German Chancellor remained unaware of Modi's friendly gesture and walked pass him. 

Later Merkel guided Prime Minister Modi towards the photo-op with the flags of the two countries, where they finally shook their hands. Let's have a look at the incident at this epic unsuccessful attempt of Prime Minister Modi to greet Angela Merkel!
