British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed to coordinate their actions in the investigation of Russia's involvement in the poisoning of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal. This was reported by the press office of the Prime Minister of Great Britain.
“The Prime Minister spoke to President Macron of France to update him on the latest situation regarding the incident in Salisbury on 4 March,” the press office reported.
Theresa May outlined the conclusion reached by the Government that it was highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
They discussed the wide pattern of aggressive Russian behaviour and agreed that it would be important to continue to act in concert with allies to address it, as it was noted.
President Macron condemned the attack and offered his solidarity with the UK, according to the press office.
They agreed that the French and British governments should coordinate closely as the investigation developed and following Russia’s response.
As it was reported earlier Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said that Russia is likely to be involved in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer. She said that in the Parliament. According to her, Skripal was poisoned by a military neuroparalytic substance, made by Russia. She believes that it was either Russia’s direct action or Moscow lost grip of its chemical weapon.
May said, that Boris Johnson, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, on March 12 called Russian ambassador for an explanation of how the substance appeared in Salisbury and was used against former Russian military intelligence officer. London expects Russia’s respond till the evening of March 13.
