Let’s play golf, no basketball please: Ban to Obama
“Mr. President, we need to find something to do,” Ban told the US president.
“I challenge you to a round of golf! But please don’t challenge me to a game of basketball!” he quipped.
Ban hosted a lunch at the United Nations for leaders of all 193 UN member-states attending this week’s General Assembly meeting.
The former South Korean foreign minister will step down in December after 10 years as the world’s top diplomat. Obama ends his eight-year term in January.
Ban led heads of state and government in a toast, raising his glass to “peace, prosperity and human rights across the world”.
