The UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, admitted that he admires all 27 leaders of the EU member states.
His remarks came in response to a question from the leading ITV channel during a debate with opposition leader of the Labor Party Jeremy Corbyn, Politico reported.
"I would like the EU27, all of them, because they did me a fantastic deal which enables us to come out of the EU,” he said.
Corbyn, in turn, named the UN Secretary General Anthony Guterres for trying to unite the world.
TV debates were held ahead of the parliamentary elections scheduled for December 12.
