British PM calls Nigeria, Afghanistan 'most corrupt countries'

10 May 2016, 21:43

London - British Prime Minister David Cameron on Tuesday called Nigeria and Afghanistan "possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world" even as he hailed their leaders' planned attendance at an anti-corruption summit in London.

He was caught on camera making the remarks to Queen Elizabeth II and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at an event marking the monarch's 90th birthday last month.

"We've got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain," Cameron said, apparently referring to the anti-corruption summit he is hosting on Thursday.

"Nigeria and Afghanistan, possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world," he said, according to a video clip published by the ITV News channel on Tuesday.

President Muhammadu Buhari and Afghanistan's President Ashraf Ghani are both due to attend the summit alongside US Secretary of State John Kerry and the heads of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
