Boris Johnson's worst diplomatic gaffes

dw.com Logo By David Martin of dw.com | Slide 1 of 14: In May 2018, Russian pranksters managed to hold an 18-minute long phone call with Johnson by pretending to be Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. During the call, Johnson said the UK would continue to squeeze the Russian regime by targeting London-based oligarchs. The pranksters also brought up the poisoning of Skripals in Salisbury, though Johnson mostly struck to his public pronouncements.

'Hello, is this the Armenian premier?'
