The Henry Jackson Society today commented ahead of the meeting of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which will examine the evidence put forward by Britain in the Skripal case.
Dr Alan Mendoza, Executive Director of the Henry Jackson Society, said:
“As the OPCW meets today, the international community must maintain its unity against Russia’s attempt to deflect attention from what was a clear violation of British sovereignty.
“Moscow’s request for this meeting is the latest in a long line of propaganda stunts which are attempting to muddy the waters and sow doubt about Russia’s responsibility for the Skripals’ poisoning.
“Through their actions so far against the Kremlin, Britain’s allies, from the EU to the United States, have demonstrated that attempted assassinations in broad daylight on Western streets cannot and will not be tolerated. The international community cannot and must not waver.”
