UK Calls for Security Council Meeting on OPCW's Skripal Attack Findings




Britain said Thursday it has requested the U.N. Security Council meet to discuss a report by the world's chemical arms watchdog on last month's poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the English city of Salisbury that also injured a police officer.
According to a declassified summary issued by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the body has confirmed Britain's findings on the identity of the nerve agent used in the attack, although not on its origin.
The Security Council meeting is expected to take place next week, according to the British mission to the U.N.
The OPCW executive council is due to meet on April 18.
