The week of the General debate of the UN General Assembly is one of the main events of world politics. Every September in new York brings together world leaders to discuss the most topical issues of world politics, to stand in new York traffic, and to develop their speaking skills.

Obviously, things don’t always go to plan and instead of historic speeches in the lenses of press cameras get not less historical embarrassments, funny and curious cases. The seventy-third General Assembly also made several such moments.

With the birth of the UN

One of the first heroines of a non-political chronicle of the UN General Assembly became the Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern, who came to new York with his three-month daughter and never parted with it, and at meetings. The baby was even issued a special permit to the United Nations.

«It was a very practical solution. In fact, Neva is near me most of the time in New Zealand,» — cited publication Newshub words Ardern.

Trump, despite all the attempts to revise the legacy of its predecessor in almost all areas, the UN continued the work of Obama, that is — late. Because of this, the President of the General Assembly Maria Espinosa Garces was forced to invite to the podium is the leader of the USA the head of Ecuador Lenin Moreno, who went third in the list.

This troubles trump the UN is not over. Arriving still to the rostrum of the General Assembly, the US leader began his speech with a story about how things are going in the United States after his arrival in the White house. He, in particular, stated that less than two years achieved more than his predecessors over the same period.

Hall met his words are clearly distinguishable laughter.

«I did not expect such a reaction. But it’s okay,» a little embarrassed trump continued to talk about the growth of the economy, reducing unemployment and other successes.

The reaction of the audience made the headlines of all international media. Trump had to make excuses. «They laughed not over me. They laughed with me. We were having fun. It was the laughter is not me», he argued.

While trump did not explain how to interpret the laughter that is so, though have reproduced the sequence of their utterances on the platform at that moment.

About what happened next, there are different versions. The newspaper «Kommersant» wrote that Poroshenko, fleeing from the Russian press, came into the room of the Russian delegation at the General Assembly. According to RIA Novosti, Poroshenko still escaped the awkward situation and meeting face to face with Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, as his luck was just next door. However, it is still sold on the jokes. When Lavrov said that Poroshenko almost went into the room of the delegation of the Russian Federation, the Russian Minister joked: «Probably, the toilet is messed up».

The experts did not appreciate the efforts of Poroshenko. Former Deputy Secretary General of the UN Sergei Ordzhonikidze expressed the opinion that Poroshenko just wanted to please Trump.

«For Americans, red tie — this is very typical. And trump loves a red tie. But I do not exclude that a red tie Poroshenko is a signal to like Trump. It may well be. Red tie now few who does,» Ordzhonikidze told RIA Novosti.

Answering the question, it is customary to specify in advance the appearance of the leaders during the meeting, he said: «Never, no. Everyone has their own Protocol. And the President in General no one can say how he dressed».

And according to experts on etiquette Eleanor Basmanova, «so to correspond in appearance is as a small, cheap, in this little taste of very little brain». «I don’t think that all the Western spin doctors are very surprised, like to say, the discovery of unity, manifested in clothing. It rather looks like a village fashion. Unworthy,» she said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

In Kiev, however, chose to pretend that everything was fine and the presentation provoked genuine interest of the audience. First Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko said that her speech Poroshenko liked. «The President of Ukraine, the audience applauded after the speech, this rarely happens in the plenary of the General Assembly», — she wrote on his page in Facebook.

She, however, silent about the fact that at the General Assembly is considered good form to maintain the applause of high-ranking speakers of the presidents or Prime Ministers. Just this week, the audience applauded to such different speakers as presidents of Turkey, France, Rounds, Seychelles, Peru, Iran, Finland, the king of Jordan, the Sheikh of Qatar and the Prime Minister of Armenia.

The meeting, which was not

For his distinguished British side. And on the field, which is usually attributed to Russia, namely, the false news. On Thursday evening, the British media reported that British foreign Secretary Jeremy hunt has met with his Russian counterpart Lavrov.

«It was hard enough … was a Frank exchange of views» — quoted hunt by the American media.

Given the ongoing scandal around the case Skipala and serious deterioration of relations between Moscow and London, such a meeting is well deserved of news marked «urgent». But it soon became clear that in Britain, apparently, was wishful thinking. First, the fact of such meeting denied a source in the Russian delegation, then official and Zakharov.

«Literally an hour and a half ago we started to receive urgent news, citing the British foreign Secretary, he met with Sergey Lavrov, «put», «firmly stated», and so on. This is another cheating our British colleagues, no meeting with Lavrov was not. No one owes for anything not delivered. In the morning there was a working lunch on behalf of UN Secretary-General to the member countries of the five… in which the parties spoke on topics that are considered relevant,» she said in the TV channel «Russia 1».

According to her, is «such an interpretation of the British side of the working Breakfast». «This is a classic of the genre. All that we see from British officialdom, official London, it’s all stitched by the same patterns with white thread. The endless manipulation of information,» said Zakharov.
