New Delhi: Seychelles president Danny Faure hit all the right notes of friendship with India as he sang a melodious song while strumming a sitar at a lunch hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Faure, who earlier in the day held talks with Modi on key issues such as maritime security and defence, took to singing 'O Mon Pei Sesel' and strumming the sitar at the lunch as the prime minister looked on.

Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted:
