Japanese Prime Minister arrives but there is no government for him to meet

SHARE


The Japanese prime minister arrived in Bucharest the day after the Romanian prime minister, and by extension the government, resigned. Japanese officials met with the President a day early and with Romanian civil servants, for want of ministers.

Bad timing by the majority Social Democratic party. Romanians are understandably angry.

I remember when the Slovenian president walked down the steps of the plane at Bucharest while the band played the Slovak national anthem. This led to a lot of Romanian self flagellation, but a Slovenian diplomat said rather sweetly, 
'Don't worry. It happens all the time.'
