Cape Town – Steven Seagal met up with Alexander Lukashenko, the president of Belarus, to talk about fresh produce.

The green-fingered Belarusian strongman showed off his watermelons and carrots and even got the 64-year-old to taste them.

Footage posted by the presidential press service showed the authoritarian leader picking up a long carrot, quickly peeling it and handing it to the black-clad martial arts star who was visiting his country residence.
