Dan­ish PM post­pones wed­ding to at­tend COVID-19 meet­ing

Iran Daily - - Infotainme­nt -

Dan­ish Prime Min­is­ter Mette Fred­erik­sen has post­poned her wed­ding to at­tend the Euro­pean Coun­cil meet­ing next month, she said in an In­sta­gram post.

EU lead­ers are sched­uled to meet face-to­face on July 17 for the first time since the out­break of the coro­n­avirus pan­demic to dis­cuss the Euro­pean bud­get and the plans for re­cov­ery from the COVID-19 cri­sis, CNN re­ported.

“I’m so look­ing for­ward to mar­ry­ing this man,” wrote Fred­erik­sen in a post that fea­tured her­self and her fi­ancé Bo Teng­berg. “The Coun­cil meet­ing in Brus­sels has been con­vened ex­actly on the Satur­day in July when we had planned our wed­ding. Damn. But, I have to do my job and pro­tect Den­mark’s in­ter­ests.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to say­ing yes to Bo (who is for­tu­nately very pa­tient),” she added.

Den­mark has recorded 12,836 coro­n­avirus cases and 603 deaths, ac­cord­ing to fig­ures from Johns Hop­kins Univer­sity.

It was one of the first Western coun­tries to be­gin eas­ing lock­down re­stric­tions in April af­ter the num­ber of cases in the coun­try re­mained low.

The leader of Den­mark’s cen­ter-left So­cial­ist Demo­cratic party be­came the coun­try’s youngest prime min­is­ter last year at the age of 41.

Last Au­gust, US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump ac­cused Fred­erik­sen of mak­ing “nasty” and “in­ap­pro­pri­ate” com­ments, af­ter she called his re­ported wish to buy Green­land “ab­surd”.
