President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross danced with swords in a traditional ceremony during a Saturday visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The dance is known as the Ardha, or the traditional dance of peace that occurs after a state of war. Trump also joined in the festivities which occurred before a large banquet dinner at one of Saudi King Salman’s palaces.
