The Russian Federation Foreign Minister has reportedly spoken in scurrilous language during a phone call to the British Foreign Minister. The Daily Telegraph has reported that the transcript of the Lavrov-Miliband phone conversation clearly shows that the Russian was swearing. “One Whitehall insider said: ‘It was not what you would call diplomatic language. It was rather shocking.” British newspapers have published articles highlighting the swear words used during the call, all of which emanated from the Russian Minister.
The United Kingdom Foreign Ministry has not officially released details of the conversation and states that it will not comment on the conversation.
