NATO’s foreign ministers have been meeting in Antalya, Turkey, for the last two days. The proceedings sound pretty boring, according to the official press release:
“The challenges we all face demand a comprehensive response, so all of us need to work even closer together,” [NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg] said at the end of a two-day meeting.
But after dinner last night, the ministers locked arms and joined in a rousing version of “We Are the World.” Seriously. This is the short video, but it’s probably all you can take:
They don’t make diplomats like they used to; it’s hard to picture Talleyrand and Metternich, or Henry Kissinger, doing that. Heck, it’s hard to picture Richard Nixon doing it.
