ABU-DHABI, March 25. /TASS/. US President Barack Obama has referred to Afghan leader Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai as "President Karzai" at a joint news conference in Washington, Hama Press news agency reported on Wednesday.
The slip-of-the-tongue occurred on March 24 when Obama was speaking about US plans to slow the drawdown of its troops in Afghanistan.
Hama Press said Obama failed to memorize the name of the new Afghan president who took office in September 2014 and has been on a visit to Washington for two days.
Hamid Karzai, who repeatedly criticised the US for its role in Afghan civilian casualties, served as the president Afghanistan in 2004-2014.
