China's official Xinhua News on Thursday named the sexual harassment of an embassy intern by President Park Geun-hye's spokesman during a state visit to Washington among the most-embarrassing incidents of 2013.

Yoon Chang-jung was fired immediately during the visit in May after allegedly groping the intern and exposing himself to her while blind drunk.

Xinhua said Yoon ruined Park's visit and overshadowed anything she may have achieved during her first U.S. trip as president.
