Response to UK spy attack not expected at EU summit - French source

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Several countries, including France, are planning measures to respond to the attack on a former Russian double agent in Britain, but an announcement is not expected at an EU summit, a source with the French presidency said

“Some countries are talking about possible counter-measures, of which France is one. But today’s discussions are not about counter-measures, rather a joint statement showing solidarity,” the source said on the sidelines of an EU summit.
