Boris Johnson held an 18-minute phone call with a prankster claiming to be the Armenian prime minister.

The pair talked about Russia, Vladimir Putin and the Salisbury poisoning during the conversation, audio released on Thursday revealed.

A UK diplomatic source later hit back, calling it a "desperate attempt by the Kremlin to save face".

Downing Street confirmed an investigation is under way.

Mr Johnson began the conversation by congratulating the hoax caller "very sincerely on your remarkable success", believing he was talking to newly elected Armenian leader Nikol Pashinyan.

"You can definitely count on the UK and I admire your vision and what you're trying to achieve," he said.

The new Armenian prime minister seemed surprisingly well informed about Novichok, Syria's Duma incident, the Iran nuclear deal , Trump , Corbyn (Britain's opposition leader), Sobchak's visits to London and Poroshenko. Johnson was excited to find out about Armenia's anti-Novichok experience when he goes there for a visit. He agreed to keep the conversation confidental
