Friendly Hollande to Obama, Giorgio Pagano: but he is the only Head of State who addressed to him in his own language

Posted on in ERA News 8 vedi

Foreign media acted in haste to point out the linguistic howler committed by Holland which ended his congratulations letter to Obama with just a "friendly" instead of a "friendly greetings".
But nobody, even in France, noticed the most important thing… That François Holland was the only Head of State to address Obama in his mothertongue, French, leaving the translation task to the diplomatic staff». This was the comment of Giorgio Pagano, from the Associazione radicale Esperanto, about the mediatic mess caused by the linguistic mistake of the French President in his congratulation message to Barack Obama.
