President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has broken the monotony at an EU-Arab League press conference in Egypt by sending its attendees into peals of laughter with his comment regarding a sudden phone call that interrupted his speech.
"It was the usual suspect… my wife!" Juncker said after finishing the brief call and continuing his speech as if nothing happened.
