MOSCOW (Reuters) - Britain’s ambassador to Russia, Laurie Bristow, attended a meeting at Russia’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday where the poisoning in Britain of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal was discussed, the diplomat said.

“I discussed with colleagues the recent incident in Salisbury and Russia’s response to the requests that we made earlier this week. Prime Minister Theresa May will be making a statement in the Houses of Parliament later on this afternoon,” Bristow said.
