Barack Obama Washington, Nov 12 (ANI): US President Barack Obama seemed to be in a relaxed mood on Thursday as he met with Chinese Premier Hu Jintao in South Korea.

For his own part, Jintao appeared defensive, according to a body language expert, reports the New York Daily News.

Here’s how Patti Wood, author of ‘Success Signals: Body Language in Business,’ saw it:

Obama: “President Obama is in a very relaxed body position and a less defensive body posture. That’s the best indication that this can be a positive communication for the President. I’d say overall he has the upper hand.”

Hu: “Hu Jintao is defensive. That’s the defensive posture with his arms clutched and his legs spread. His arm over the side is protecting himself from Obama.” (ANI)
