Belgium: NATO expresses solidarity with UK over Salisbury case

Belgium, Brussels
March 19, 2018 at 18:12 GMT -00:00 · Published

SOT, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General: "The attack in Salisbury was the first use of a nerve agent on alliance territory. It showed a total disrespect for human lives. And the attack was an unacceptable breach of international norms and rules. NATO allies have been united in condemning this attack. And they have offered their support to the ongoing investigation. Russia's response so far has demonstrated a clear disregard for international peace and security. We continue to call on Russia to provide complete disclosure of the Novichok programme to the the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. And we welcome the UK's cooperation with OPCW in the investigation in this horrendous attack."

So Foreign Secretary, thank you once again for coming here. Russia will continue to seek to divide us, but NATO allies stand united and we stand in solidarity with UK."

SOT, Boris Johnson, UK Foreign Secretary: "We share the view that the poisoning of Sergei Skripal is not an isolated case but the latest in a pattern of reckless behaviour by the Russian state. That behaviour goes back many years, from Russia's annexation of Crimea to cyber attacks and its involvement in the Syrian war, Russia has showen itself. The Russian state has shown itself to have a blatant disregard for international order, for international law and values, our values."

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO members stand united and in solidarity with the UK over the Skripal case, during a meeting with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in Brussels on Monday.

"Russia's response so far has demonstrated the clear disregard for international peace and security. We continue to call on Russia to provide complete disclosure of the Novichok programme," Stoltenberg said.

Johnson thanked the support of NATO and added that "the poisoning of Sergei Skripal is not an isolated case but the latest in a pattern of reckless behaviour by the Russian state."

Russia denies the UK's claims it was involved in the poisoning of ex-double agent Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, UK. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitri Peskov has accused the UK of "incomprehensible, unreasonable slander" against Moscow.
