13.04.2018 - Embassy’s comment on the letter of Mark Sedwill to NATO on the incident in Salisbury

We have taken note of the letter by Prime Minister’s National Security Adviser Sir Mark Sedwill to NATO Secretary General Mr Jens Stoltenberg published on 13 April. This piece is a further demonstration of the lack of any evidence of Russia’s involvement in the Salisbury incident. The whole case against Russia is built on three elements: the identification of the chemical substance, artificial assumptions and conclusions regarding “track record” and “motive”, and unverifiable “intelligence information”. As to the substance, it is now common knowledge that any modern laboratory is able to produce it. The OPCW report adds nothing in this respect.
