Gotta love President al-Sisi!
IB Times US Secretary of State John Kerry and his top aides were checked by Egyptian security officers using metal detectors at the Egyptian presidential palace in an unconventional diplomatic move. Foreign officials normally trust US officials enough not to check them with such stringent security measures. Diplomatic immunity usually means that top officials are exempt from such checks because of their potential to be viewed a sign of distrust.
In footage obtained by Reuters, an Egyptian official raises a handheld metal-detecting implement to Kerry’s jacket before waving him through for the high-level meeting with newly-elected president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
