No big deal.

As I understand it, the pens used at the various media/document signing ceremonies, are gifts for the visiting head of state or the like.

Just like the custom of the US president using multiple pens to sign, these pens are then given to the various different parties involved as a memento.

No harm stealing it after the press conference.. But right in the middle of one, and trying to be somewhat sneaky about it at the same time?

You do see the humour of it, don't you?

I don't really care about the procedures - I just thought it was frankly hilarious.

Quite right, he looks sneaky, especially the way he takes the pen out of the box, then lowers his hands under the table, like nobody has noticed   

Wonder if he will declare it, once he returns home ????

The way he looked at the pen and nodded, that was priceless! And then the sneaky grin after that.
