Moscow says will not accept conclusions of OPCW on spy poisoning

Moscow (Russia) (AFP) – Moscow on Thursday said it would not accept the conclusions of the world’s chemical arms watchdog on the poisoning of a former spy in England unless Russian experts could access the samples used.

“Russia won’t take on faith any conclusion relating to the Skripal affair until such a time as Russian experts are allowed access to the samples mentioned (by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons),” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
