Macron blasts ‘unacceptable attack’ on ex-spy in Britain

Paris (AFP) – French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday blasted the “unacceptable” nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain and expressed his “full solidarity” with the British government.

“The president condemned the unacceptable attack and reaffirmed France’s commitment to fighting impunity when it comes to chemical weapons use,” Macron’s office said in a statement.

Macron spoke to British Prime Minister Theresa May by telephone on Monday evening and she informed him of the results of the investigation and the answers she was expecting from Moscow, the statement added.
