“Take care, be careful”, Viktor Tsoi sang a Korean of his father, by the way. And here is the president South Korean Yoon Seok Yeol he didn’t take care of himself so he got into a serious diplomatic scandal, insulting dignitaries in the US.

as writes “Washington Post”the embarrassment occurred at the 7th Global Fund Replenishment Conference in New York, where: Biden pledged that the United States will devote $6 billion to the development of health care around the world, especially to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. Under US law, such spending requires Congressional approval, and it was here that he was unknowingly “pinned down” by the President of the Republic of Korea, Yun Seok-yol.

“It will be so humiliating for Biden if these idiots don’t approve of his decision,” Yoon Seok Yeol said of US lawmakers in a conversation with his aides, disregarding the journalists standing nearby.

The video with the president’s words has already spread across Korean social networks. Admittedly, the next day, the head of state government began to come out and release a statement that Yoon Suk Yeol had nothing bad in not mentioning Biden by name, and what seemed to others to be the word “Biden”. “, it turns out, a Korean word was similar to pronunciation. And in general, it was not about the US Congress, but about the Korean Parliament, which is apparently full of “idiots”.

In South Korea itself, the clumsy apologies did not receive much praise. The opposition called everything that is happening a “diplomatic catastrophe.”

And the Americans weren’t particularly offended, or at least they were. The US National Security Council has announced it will “not comment” on such information. “Our relations with the Republic of Korea are strong and developing,” the Security Council said in a statement. “President Biden is counting on President Yoon Seok-yeol as a key ally, and both leaders had a good and productive meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.”
