This looks like the guy sitting on the left is opening his robe to reveal an Iranian woman hiding inside.

Well, congratulations to Ms. Ebtekar for becoming Iran's first female vice president.

Having a woman as a vice president, it looks like Iran is more advanced than Japan in gender equality.

"it looks like Iran is more advanced than Japan in gender equality."

"Looks"? Women in Japan aren't forced to cover up 90% of their bodies in public.

did she buy some potatoes before this meeting? (Judging by her big bag, for grocery shopping obviously)

" Prime Minister Shinzo Abe meets with Iranian Vice President Masoumeh Ebtekar at his official residence in Tokyo on Thursday. "

Does it matter what is in her bag? An Iranian Vice President is meeting with a Japanese Prime Minister. What in the world did they discuss? Any content available?

"Great minds think alike... ?"

Abe looks bemused and slightly uncomfortable. Probably wondering how to establish rapport with a woman who feels the need to wear a tent. He's definitely thinking about lunch.

He's thinking something like, "I wish Japan had its own oil so that I didn't have to meet with another strange foreigner." Or words to that effect.

Oohhhhh. I bet the NSA is already eavesdropping! Watch out!

It appears the whole situation is AMUSING to both parties. As if to say " We BOTH really KNOW my Post as Vice President is a FARCE & MEANINGLESS " .

What did they discuss? Looks like she is here on a holiday

Andreas, are you being serious?

Iran, the country whose women are subject o 'honor killings' and forced marriages, where women are most definitely NOT equal under Islamic/Sharia and national laws.
