UN chief says use of nerve agent in Britain unacceptable

Wed 14 Mar 2018 at 19:14 International
NNA - UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the use of a nerve agent in an attack in Britain on a former Russian spy was "unacceptable."


"The use of nerve agents as a weapon under any circumstances is unacceptable and its use by a state would constitute a serious violation of international law," UN spokesman Farhan Haq tells reporters.


The comments come before an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council called at Britains request to discuss the attack that left ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in critical condition. ---AFP
