Talk about an awkward moment: Iraq's prime minister found himself literally edged out by a trio of world leaders including President Barack Obama on Monday.
Obama — who is in Germany for the G-7 summit — was chatting with Italy's prime minister and the managing director of the IMF when Iraqi Prime Minister Hayder al-Abadi sidled up and took a seat on their bench.
In a cringe-worthy encounter captured on video, Obama and the other leaders appear to be unaware of the Iraqi leader's presence.
When the three leaders stood up, Abadi followed suit — checking his watch as he appears to try getting a word in before giving a slight shrug and wandering away.
The threat of ISIS militants wreaking havoc in Abadi's nation has been one of the topics under discussion at the two-day gathering.
