US President Donald Trump has called on Moscow to provide “unambiguous answers” about the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England.
Trump made the plea during a phone conversation with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday, throwing his full support behind London’s strategy of confronting Moscow over the poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia on March 4.
“President Trump said the US was with the UK all the way, agreeing that the Russian government must provide unambiguous answers as to how this nerve agent came to be used,” May’s office said in an emailed statement.
“The two leaders agreed on the need for consequences for those who use these heinous weapons in flagrant violation of international norms,” it added.
Earlier in the day and before the call, the US president said the former double agent’s poisoning in Britain sounded like the work of Russia.
