So our Foreign Minister Össur Skarphéðinsson was in New York last week at the United Nations’ General Assembly, along with an Icelandic delegation. Here they are listening to Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe give his address:
OK, either old Robert was giving the dullest speech in the history of the UN, or the Icelandic delegation did a little too much partay-ing the night before.
Be that as it may, old Össur did not, um, rest on his laurels for long, because he gave a pretty kick-ass speech when it came to his turn. Here it is:
Pretty willing to bet that Iceland hasn’t made any new friends among Iranian or Israeli officials, but some things just need to be said. Props to Össur for saying them.
