After landing the plane with the President of the United States, the Chinese side allegedly did not provide Obama a ladder with a red carpet, with the result that he was forced to exit through the tail part of the liner.

In addition, the Chinese pushed American journalists from the plane and tried to prevent the presidential adviser Susan rice to approach the head of state. In response to the indignation of the representative of the American delegation, one of the organizers of the meeting said: “This is our country, our airport”.

This attitude, of course, hurt the feelings of the Americans. The New York Times wrote about “a cold reception” that Beijing had Obama. Amerikanskie scouts commented on the article with the words “As always fun, China”.

Subsequently, the office deleted the tweet and brought it to China to apologize. Intelligence said that the post was posted “erroneously” and does not reflect the position of management.

Earlier today, a tweet regarding a news article was mistakenly posted from this account & does not represent the views of the DIA. We apologize.

Note that the Chinese media later reported, citing its sources, that the representatives of the American special services have refused the ladder, allegedly for security purposes.
