Russia has requested a UN security council meeting over the poisoning of Russian spy in Britain.
Russia’s ambassador to United Nations Vassily Nebenzia said that Russia is requesting a security council meeting over British government’s implication against it in the nerve agent attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
The ambassador said that Russia will soon send a letter to UNSC which will clarify Russia’s position.
A former colonel in Russia’s military intelligence service, Segei Skripal was attacked by nerve agent in Britain.
British PM Theresa May had put the blame for the attack squarely on Moscow saying,’ There is no plausible alternative explanation’.
Russia has vehemently denied the accusation.
UNSC held an emergency meeting on March 14 at the request of Britain on the issue which has sent ripples through global politics as it set off tit-for-tat expulsion of diplomats from Russia and other western countries.
