The summit «group of twenty» in Argentina will end in the coming hours, the official results have yet to comprehend, but it is obvious that the international meeting will remain in memory for a long time — largely due to the large number of embarrassing moments involving the heads of major powers.

RIA Novosti has prepared a selection of the funniest embarrassment.

With the arrival!

Several «puncture» happened at the airport, where he arrived the leaders of the countries «the twenty». So, solemn, relying to the head of state, «welcome!» in the beginning the error is not addressed to XI Jinping, and one of the members of the Chinese delegation, which first went on the ladder. However the leader of China to complain, by and large, was not for that: unlike many other heads of States, his on the pitch were greeted with flowers and an orchestra.

Such a warm welcome and was deprived of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, because she had to fly to Buenos Aires scheduled flight. The fact that her plane was forced to abort the flight, barely taking off due to technical failure. In the end, the head of Germany arrived in Argentina very late normal flight of the Spanish airline Iberia.

The President of France Emmanuel macron and his wife arrived in Buenos Aires on time, but laid them on the status of the reception at the ramp they came. The French leader met the authorities of Argentina — against all the rules of diplomatic Protocol.

«Take the rap» for all had an ordinary airport employee, who ironically was in a yellow vest. In France several weeks are rallies against rising prices for gasoline and diesel fuel protesters can be recognized by yellow jackets, which is a mandatory attribute of French motorists.

As explained later Vice-President of Argentina Gabriela Michetti, the reason for this diplomatic embarrassment was delayed signal from the representatives of Makron — they are too late to tell the Argentines that it was time to meet the presidential couple.

Give vent to emotions

For the President of France, his participation in the summit in Buenos Aires was rich in an awkward situation. Thus, a fragment of his conversation with the crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman on the sidelines of the summit was captured on a video camera.

«Don’t worry,» he tried to comfort the French leader, the actual head of the Saudi Kingdom. «I’m worried. I am concerned about.. I told you,» replied his companion macron. Then the President of France made a reproach: «You never listen to me,» to which Ben Salman replied, «no, I’m certainly listening.»

On the subject of the conversation is anyone’s guess. It was the first personal conversation between the leaders after the murder of journalist Jamal Hakuji in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. In some countries suspect that the order to kill the reporter himself gave the crown Prince, but no evidence of this.

In the administration of the French President decided to stop that speculation and made a statement that the Makron expressed concern in connection with the murder of the journalist and the situation in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia pursues a military operation.

Much more relaxed was the first informal conversation on the summit of the crown Prince and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. Seeing each other before the first working session, leaders like old friends grinned and gave each other a high five. Video with such non-standard for large international events greeting widely dispersed across the network.

At the summit in Argentina, the emotions of the bystanders gave birth even some usually causing zavodny reflex official meetings where nothing to hear, except «we intend to continue our cooperation.» Statement by the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe at the meeting with the President of the United States Donald trump was forced to raise surprised eyebrows. Japanese leader congratulated the American colleague on a «historic victory» in the midterm elections in the United States. In fact, according to their results, the Republican party lost its majority in the house of representatives. Of course, the predecessors of trump after two years of presidency have sometimes lost their benefits in the Senate – Abe meant it and wanted to make the American leader is pleased or just confused?

Emotional was and gala evening in the Teatro colón, where the leaders of the «twenty» showed a 40-minute performance about the diversity of Argentina. The host of the meeting, the Argentine President Mauricio Macri — felt so strongly that after the final chord barely held back tears. Its a joke of it, smiling, reassured the first lady Julian Awad. Later, Macri on Twitter explained their emotions with pride for Argentina and the Argentine people.
