‘Reckless Russia’ broke chemical arms ban: British ambassador

The Hague (AFP) – Britain accused Russia on Wednesday of breaking the two-decade international ban on chemical weapons at emergency talks into last month’s poisoning with a nerve agent of a former Russian spy.

“We will continue to call out Russia’s reckless and indiscriminate behaviour when it violates the CWC (Chemical Weapons Convention), and when it threatens global security,” British ambassador Peter Wilson told a meeting of the global chemical arms watchdog, according to a tweet from the UK delegation.
