European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen gave her annual State of the European Union address to the European Parliament on Wednesday, where she said the coming year would be "another test of character for the EU."

Her speech addressed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, steps the EU took to slow the spread of the virus and the bloc’s future plans for vaccinations.

"In the biggest global health crisis we chose to go it together," von der Leyen said, adding that 70% of Europe’s adult population was fully vaccinated.

Von der Leyen said Europe was the only region to share its vaccine stock with other countries and pledged an additional 200 million doses to low-income countries.

‘Sofagate’: Brussels angry over von der Leyen Turkey chair snub | DW News

The European Commission on Wednesday reproached Ankara after its chief Ursula von der Leyen found there was no chair for her as the Turkish president sat down to talk to her male colleague Charles Michel.

The incident was quickly dubbed "sofagate," with observers saying the Commission president had been a victim of sexism and treated like a second-rank official.

Von der Leyen was in Ankara with European Council President Charles Michel, to speak to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Footage showed Von der Leyen gesture in disbelief and utter a surprised "ähm" as Erdogan and Michel took the two center-stage seats that had been prepared.

The Commission head was instead forced to sit on an adjacent sofa, slightly further away from her male counterparts.

She was seated opposite the Turkish foreign minister, who would normally be considered below her in the protocol pecking order.

As president of the European Commission, von der Leyen is head of the EU executive, while, as European Council president, Charles Michel coordinates between the leaders of the EU member states, especially during summits. If anything, von der Leyen’s post is considered the more senior and important.

Brussels expects both to be treated with the protocol that would be reserved for a head of government.

Ursula von der Leyen left without a seat during EU meeting

The EU Commission President is one of the most powerful women in the world but that didn’t prevent a high-level diplomatic snub that many are putting down to sexism.

Ursula von der Leyen was speechless after being left without a chair in a meeting with Turkey’s President Erdogan and the EU Council President Charles Michel.

As the two man took their seats, the German former Defence Minister eventually took a nearby spot on a sofa.

Sky’s Becky Cotterill has more now on the anger caused by the gaffe.
