Face the US President Of the bygones Technical problems operating the translation headset during an international meeting at the White House.
It is noteworthy that this incident is not the first of its kind. The same problem occurred last Thursday during the first in attendance meeting between the leaders of the “Quadruple Security Dialogue” (Quad) countries, namely the United States, Australia, India and Japan.
At the conclusion of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s speech, Biden began taking notes in a notebook, and then appeared in his confusion as he looked at his watch and inspected the wire of the translation headset.
Then the US president asked a technical employee to reach him and addressed him by saying, pointing to the translation device, in front of the media’s lenses and without turning off the microphone: “I can’t turn it on at all.”
The employee proceeded to check the electronic device for an alleged defect, at which point the live broadcast of the meeting was cut off.
