Chemical Watchdog Visit Announced

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has announced that representatives from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons will come to the UK from the Hague on Monday as part of the Skripal nerve agent attack investigation. 

Johnson has said that samples will be shared and tested by the ‘most reputable international laboratories.’

On the Marr show on Sunday, Johnson described Russia’s response to the attack as ”smug sarcasm, obfuscation and delay.”

Meanwhile, the Russian ambassador has accused Johnson of “acting in an inappropriate manner which doesn’t give him credit.”
