Among the guests at the event was the US Ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, who has recently come under fire from international media after she tweeted a controversial claim about election fraud at last week’s US Presidential Election.
Sands was keen to answer questions about the new agreement but less so when the focus turned to the controversial tweet. After being probed by journalists about her intentions for writing the tweet, she and her PR people escaped out of the backdoor of the Nordic House and drove off.
