Brussels, September 4
The NATO allies agreed on Friday that Russia should cooperate totally with an neutral investigation to be led by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons into the poisoning of opposition chief Alexei Navalny, the alliance’s chief mentioned.
“Any use of chemical weapons shows a total disrespect for human lives and is an unacceptable breach of international norms and rules,” Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg instructed a information convention.
“The NATO allies agree that Russia now has serious questions, which it must answer. The Russian government must fully cooperate with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on an impartial international investigation,” he mentioned, reporting again from a gathering of the alliance’s ambassadors.
