EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini held consultations with Markus Ederer, the recalled head of the EU Delegation in Russia.
According to the European External Action Service, the diplomat 'arrived in Brussels after having been recalled for consultations as requested by the European Council on Friday'.
The consultations will continue in the following several days; there's no word about the discussed topics so far.
As is known, the UK charged the Russian government with using a chemical weapon to poison ex-agent of Russian intelligence Sergei Skripal and his daugther Yulia. The high-profile case turned into a true diplomatic scandal, as the two countries expelled each other's diplomats.
Twenty EU member countries may begin sending off Russian diplomats on Monday, too.
