Argentina's President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner speaks with Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) Zhang Dejiang (not pictured) during their meeting at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, February 5, 2015. Fernandez, on a tour of China to strengthen ties as the economy teeters on the brink of a recession, appeared to commit a diplomatic blunder on Wednesday by poking fun at how the Chinese speak. While Fernandez's remark on Twitter that the Chinese pronounce the letter 'r' as an 'l' will be taken by her supporters as a light-hearted joke typical of her folksy style on social media, she may have offended her hosts. China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei repeatedly declined to comment on the matter at a regular press briefing on Thursday. But Chinese Internet users were quick to lambast the president for her breach of etiquette. REUTERS/Wu Hong/Pool (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS)
