Yes in this case, but one should never give a handshake with the left hand to Arabs, as they (at least the Wahhabis still?) use this hand for something else.
Another thing I learned was that you should never sit with your leg in such a way as you showed the bottom of a shoe as if it pointed to someone you showed him disrespect as the sole is najis (unclean). But the question is: What is worse the left or the right shoe?
