Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has travelled to India to attend the G20 Summit in New Delhi on September 9 and 10. He is accompanied by his son, Xavier Trudeau, who was seen happily waving from the aircraft after landing in the national capital.
Justin Trudeau, 51, and his 16-year-old son arrived in India on September 8 and were received by Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar at the airport.

Xavier Trudeau is wearing a fine beige colour suit over a black T-shirt as he follows his father and meets officials welcoming them.
