BRUSSELS, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld Tuesday won the prestigious "non-EU citizen of the year" award at a black-tie gala event in Brussels.

It is Rumsfeld's second European prize in a week. Earlier he was handed the Foot in Mouth award by Britain's Plain English Campaign for describing Iraq's weapons of mass destruction as "known unkowns."

Maltese Prime Minister Eddie Fenech Adami won the "European of the year" prize at the Brussels event organized by the European Voice newspaper. Diplomat of the year went to EU policy chief Javier Solana and businessman of 2003 to Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary.
