US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin were both in New York City on Monday to address the annual United Nations General Assembly.

The luncheon followed both presidents’ competing speeches before the General Assembly. Obama and Putin took a number of subtle — and not-so-subtle shots — at each other on the world stage.

Later in the day, they are scheduled to have a face-to-face meeting.
