i dont think PM Lee needs to bow at all.Originally posted by archkiller:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, left, bows in front of the German flag during the welcoming ceremony with military honours for Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, center, in the Chancellory in Berlin on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2005. Instead of bowing in front of the German flag according to the international protocol Singapore's Prime Minister kept on walking and left Chancellor Merkel behind. It was Merkel's first welcoming ceremony with military honours for an international guest after being elected Chancellor.
OMFG nternational disgrace for SG again after VAN's case.
maybe his nick ''PMlee'' stands for something else lehz??Originally posted by meleagent:Your pathetic attempt at currying favour and defending your PAPpies master is pretentious and laughable at best
He has to stop, and the protocol officer stepped in to stop him after that.Originally posted by KangZ:Why does he need to bow to the German flag? Have u ever seen an Indo general saluting our flag? What is weird is that he didn't wait for Merkel and continue walking... But then before the flag both of them would be walking together, so if she stopped he would know what... Why did he keep walking? Maybe he doesn't even need to stop?
Well, he and Merkel joined up where they left off and entered the building for the meeting and press conference.Originally posted by dragg:no photos of what happened after that?
but this is true, it just seemed strange that our leader need to bow to the flag of another country, isn't it? probably the PM really made a mistake for not stopping lah.Originally posted by lastfall:thats the problem with some typical singaporeans.when we did something wrong ,we cover up my saying "o could it be a photo trickery or do we have to bow ?? " o come on it will be more gentleman of a country to just apologise if the media questions it.thay don't call it protocol for nothing,if everybody that high profile does not remember and who does ? are you telling me we will start to question do we have to follow the geneva convention when the war started??
Let's just call it a mistake and move on?Shall we.I'm sure PM has been advised by the protocol department.Originally posted by UandMe:but this is true, it just seemed strange that our leader need to bow to the flag of another country, isn't it? probably the PM really made a mistake for not stopping lah.
