WASHINGTON (AP) – Climate. Climate. Macron Macron again. Signal signal Signal signal Signal signal Can someone please tell Vladimir Putin that he is live? Mr. President, Mr. President
And please shut up, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Just like the rest of us, world leaders are still figuring out the technical side of virtual work, even though the epidemic has been going on for more than a year. The live broadcast of the Global Climate Summit in the United States on Thursday began not with an explosion, but with a deviation.
Vice President Kamala Harris began the two-day summit by introducing President Biden, but his speech was literally a double talk. He responded to everything he said.
It set the tone for the event, which included “random signals”, “more responses”, a random revelation that the speech of French President Emanuel Macron seemed to be recorded.
The first time Macron took office, there was no simultaneous translation until the end, when he introduced him to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
But no one told Putin. Unpleasantly, for a long time, more than a minute, the Russian leader was silent on the screen, looking ahead and not talking, except turning his head to the assistants. Sometimes the finger danced around the lips and chin.
Finally he got his signal: started talking.
When Putin finished, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken asked for a copy of Macron’s tape. The translation was still late, but at least it appeared.
The Australian Prime Minister had one drawback that Zoom users are well aware of during the “you are dumb” period. He began to speak, but at first no one listened to him.
During the conversations of several leaders, phone calls were heard. There were several times when wandering voices spoke of leaders, տեղեկատվ information from Colombia was vague.
When Biden returned for his second speech, this time with an emphasis on money and technology, technology did not work together. The response to that start of the show is back, back.
The fun not all moments were technical flaws.
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris John Onson wanted everyone to know that the fight against climate change is not “hugging a rabbit”. He wanted to be so serious, he used the phrase twice, essentially saying “rabbit, rabbit” in response.
