Colombia’s ambassador to the U.S. Gabriel Silva asked the White House for a new and more meaningful apology for the Secret Service sex scandal, reported Colombian daily El Tiempo
Silva contacted the White House to request that the U.S. government express stronger repudiation of the U.S. Secret Service agents who hired 21 prostitutes in the city of Cartagena earlier this month, just days before the start of the Summit of the Americas.
“The U.S. should apologize further. It is necessary and I want to hear it from the White House. A more clear expression of remorse is required to protect the reputation of Cartagena” Silva told El Tiempo.
The Colombian diplomat lamented the media coverage of the situation in the U.S., describing it as “superficial, sensationalist and unfair.”
