Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan attended the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai as part of his visit to the nation. While a TV blooper involving the PM made headlines earlier, now a set of photos of the prime minister checking out his country’s pavilion at the expo is inspiring memes and jokes.

In a photo widely shared on social media, the cricketer-turned-politician is sitting behind a semi-circular desk, that is being called a “spaceship” and a “video game parlour”. The photographs showed Khan with top Pakistani officials and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi around him.
