Britain to present Salisbury poison evidence to UN on Thursday – spokesman

Britain will present its evidence on the nerve agent poisoning in Salisbury at a UN Security Council meeting on Thursday, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. The statement came after May blamed Russia for the murder attempt. The spokesman also said that British officials had stressed at a meeting with Russia’s charge d’affaires in London that Britain wanted those responsible for the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter brought to justice, Reuters reports. “We have called for a Security Council meeting to take place on Thursday so we can update the council on the progress of the Salisbury investigation,” he said. The meeting was due to take place around 1530 GMT.
