Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted his thanks to former U.S. President Barack Obama after the two shared a private dinner at a Montreal restaurant.

Trudeau posted a picture of the pair talking in the eatery, with the caption “How do we get young leaders to take action in their communities? Thanks @BarackObama for your visit & insights tonight in my hometown.”

Last year, Obama hosted Trudeau for a state dinner at the White House, the first for Canada since 1997.
