Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson talked international relations and rude poetry with a hoax caller who pretended to be the Armenian prime minister in an embarrassing new gaffe for one of Britain's most prominent politicians.One of the pair impersonated Armenia's new Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, claiming he was going to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin.The caller, speaking English with a Russian accent, asked for information about Britain's response to the poisoning of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury and solicited Johnson's advice on how to deal with Vladimir Putin.Johnson replied that he is "almost 100 percent sure" that Mr. Putin was behind the attack and that it is important to avoid a "new Cold War". Several minutes later, Johnson grew suspicious, and as the prankster was talking, the line went quiet.
