India's Faux Pas at UN

It was an embarrassing gaffe.

India's External Affairs Minister SM Krishna accidentally read out the speech of his Portuguese counterpart at the United Nations Security Council meeting.

He read several pages of the wrong speech which included a point expressing his pleasure that two Portuguese speaking nations (Portugal and Brazil) were represented.

He did not realize his mistake until an Indian official pointed out.

But his mistake taught us how important it is to acquire an English reading skill. (^□^;)haha
