"I think we do punch above our weight in the world and I think that's to do with industry, entrepreneurship, it's to do with the English language, our position in the world, the fact that we've got these great universities, great businesses, the science base, there's a good list of advantages we have," he said.

He reiterated that the UK was a member of the EU, the G8, the G20, the Commonwealth, Nato, and a permanent member of the UN Security Council.

He added: "And of course being a United Kingdom, being a collection of countries, that together can work together again helps us punch above our weight."
