Washington, April 16 (ANI): US President Barack Obama has said that he will be annoyed if allegations made against the Secret Service agents are proved correct.
In his first public statement on the prostitution scandal that involved members of the Secret Service, he said the Secret Service personnel, like the rest of the US delegation should observe the highest standards.
According to Fox News, Obama said he would pass a judgment only after the investigations are complete, adding that the probe should be thorough and rigorous.
Obama addressed the controversy during a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.
Allegations that a Secret Service unit interacted with prostitutes in Colombia ahead of Obama's visit overshadowed trip between U.S. and its Latin American ally that focused on trade and other pressing issues between the two countries.
Obama has termed the incident an exception and praised the Secret Service as a whole.
The Secret Service scandal is the latest example of federal workers coming under the congressional microscope for their conduct. (ANI)
