SEOUL: US President Barack Obama gave Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh a big hug and greeted him with 'Nice to meet you prime minister', during a brief dinner meeting between the two at the Nuclear Security Summit here, an official said Monday.

While there was no anticipated "pull aside" meeting between the two leaders, Obama and Singh did have a "pull-in" meeting at a dinner here for the 58 leaders attending the March 26-27 Nuclear Security Summit, the official said.

"There was no pull-aside; there was a pull-in. Obama gave the prime minister a big hug and said 'Nice to meet you prime minister'," the official said.
