The current British leadership has deliberately been pursuing a policy to derail the Russia-UK relations, and if it still pursued in the form of certain anti-Russian actions, the principle of mutuality is still in force, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has announced at a news conference in Japan on March 21.
“We shall seek answers to all our questions that are formulated in detail and that the leadership of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has. The questions we have are of absolutely professional nature. They are comprehensible and concise, they contain no lyrics that accompanies position of the British leadership that insists that there two scenarios only: either it was done under an instruction of the Russian leadership, or the Russian leadership lost control over some chemical agents. To remind, we have destroyed them which was verified by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons last fall,” the Russian minister continued.
“I think everyone comprehends everything, but due to the wrongly understood solidarity they have to make statements that can at least somehow be interpreted as support of London’s position. I stress once again: this all is done in a time when the investigation has not been completed, when no court hearing has taken place, and we have no court verdict yet. So, the Anglo-Saxon law receives new very interesting precedents,” the Russian foreign minister added.
