Shit gets real when diplomats get drunk

At a UN retreat, a Chinese diplomat named Sha Zukang got drunk and gave an overly honest toast, singling out Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

“I know you never liked me Mr. Secretary-General — well, I never liked you, either,” Sha told Ban at a dinner attended by the U.N.’s top brass, according to a senior U.N. official who attended the event. “I didn’t want to come to New York. It was the last thing I wanted to do. But I’ve come to love the U.N. and I’m coming to admire some things about you.”

He also confessed he didn’t like one Bob Orr because “he’s an American and I really don’t like Americans”.

CLASSIC.
