Several news websites including Wall Street Journal have mistaken Presiden Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s interpreter Ahmet Emrah Kale with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a photograph shot by Kai Pfaffenbach for Reuters.
The confusion was most probably caused by an incorrect caption written by Reuters Photo Service, in which a conversation at the G20 summit in Germany’s Hamburg was mistaken for a chat between U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, President Erdoğan and Foreign Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, except it was not Trudeau participating in the conversation, but Erdoğan’s interpreter Kale instead.
“U.S. President Donald Trump, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan talk during the working session at the G20 leaders’ summit in Hamburg, Germany, July 7, 2017,” the initial photo caption read.
