In less than a year, the sofagate has spilled a lot of ink. On a visit to Turkey, the President of the European Commission had to sit on a couch away from Erdogan and Charles Michel, who had placed himself upright in the only seat provided by the Turkish President for the meeting.
The story repeats itself. A similar incident happened during the summit between the European Union and the African Union in Brussels this Thursday. Ursula von der Leyen, Charles Michel and Emmanuel Macron had gathered for a photo session with representatives of the countries participating in the summit. As he takes the stage, Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa approaches the President of the European Commission, ignoring him, to directly shake hands with the President of the Council and the President of France, who presides over the Council. . The European Union.
Charles Mitchell remained emotionless. But after the photo session, Emmanuel Macron informed Sam Kutesa about the presence of Ursula von der Leyen, who then began a brief exchange with her, without moving her hand.
The chairman of the council had already been criticized for his lack of response during the Sofaget in Turkey. He then expressed “his deepest regret”. This time again the web attacks them for the same reason.
