A Romanian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman has been fired after handing away a gift to Germany’s foreign minister. The gift contained two images of the flags of the two countries in the shape of the landscapes.

The German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier received the gift containing the German flag in the shape of France from Bogdan Aurescu, the Romanian Foreign minister, following a news conference on Monday to mark 125 years of diplomatic relations.

Following the incident however, the Romanian Foreign minister and the printing company apologized for the mistake. The Romanian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Brandusa Predescu was fired on Wednesday (11th March).

Steinmeier however, had responded diplomatically stating that he hadn’t even noticed the mistake.
