World leaders impressed that Americans telling Russians not to invade Ukraine can keep a straight face

Politicians from around the world have praised the American diplomatic effort to stop the Russian invasion of Ukraine for being even-handed yet forceful, for being timely yet well-thought out, but mainly for John Kerry not falling about laughing when saying ‘You just don’t in the 21st Century behave in 19th-century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext.’. The Mexican president said ‘I like what the US is doing, the way they are treating Putin, but most of all I like the way how Kerry and Obama can talk as though they actually mean what they are saying. There’s no looking away from the camera, no covering of the mouth when speaking, no spluttering when giving a speech. Really very impressive.’
