FILE - In this file photo taken Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013, Czech Republic's Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok arrives for an EU summit. Many world leaders have said they wouldn't miss Nelson Mandela's funeral for anything, but Czech Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok isn't among them. Rusnok's conversation with Defense Minister Vlastimil Picek in parliament on Friday was broadcast by the Czech public television news channel. When Picek reminded him that President Milos Zeman might be unable to fly due to a knee injury, Rusnok reacted with a vulgar term. Addressing his companion by the Czech equivalent of "dude," Rusnok said: "I'm dreading that I will have to go." (AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert, File)
