It could be a case of instant besties as Pope Francis and President Obama were all smiles meeting for the first time at the Vatican Thursday. The main focus of their meeting is poverty and social justice as two of the world’s most famous leaders chatted in the glare of the media’s flashing lights.

After a smile and a handshake the leaders sat down at a table from across each other. The meeting was arranged to discuss poverty and equality while addressing more controversial topics like contraception, same-sex marriage and abortion.

The two leaders may differ on certain issues but appear to have started their first meeting in a positive and hopeful manner judging by their smiles.
