Did Ignazio Cassis (61) allow himself to be exploited by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov (72) when he posed smiling for a photo together? Or did the Federal President have no chance of preventing the handshake on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York?

Diplomats make it clear: handshakes are part of the UN. And yet they criticize the foreign minister. Cassis should have known not to smile, but to look serious. “We pay Cassis for that as Federal President,” says a former top Swiss diplomat.
