Narendra Modi's meeting with Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte gives Twitter a good laugh

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent three-nation tour has been crucial in exploring avenues of cooperation in international relations, it has attracted a lot of memes from netizens. Modi, who visited the Netherlands on Tuesday, received a unique gift from the Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte — a bicycle, which is also the most preferred mode of transportation in the country.

ANI tweeted a photo of Modi riding the bicycle along with Rutte standing on his side. This picture evoked some funny responses on Twitter.

While the internet was still laughing over the picture, Rutte's other gaffe was not spared either. Before the meeting Rutte decided to welcome Modi on Twitter in Hindi.  

The tweet roughly translates as: "Welcome to the Netherlands @narendramodi. Our nations have ties that go back to 70 years, and I am extremely excited about our meeting." However, the tweet had no space in between the words. This post set another series of hilarious comments on social media.

The Dutch prime minister soon realised the mistake and put another tweet with corrections.

Modi is scheduled to visit Israel on 4 July, and the Twitterverse is already waiting for his meeting with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Until then, the Dutch and Trump memes shall keep everyone entertained.
