NATO Expels Seven Russian Diplomats Over UK Spy Poisoning

NATO Expels Seven Russian Diplomats Over UK Spy Poisoning

The alliance will also deny pending accreditation requests for three others, and reduce the maximum size of the mission to 20 people, down from 30, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said at a press conference.

"I have today withdrawn the accreditation of 7 staff of the Russian mission to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

Ever since the nerve agent attack against the former double agent in England has surfaced, Russian Federation is drawing widespread condemnation from all around the world.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the move is meant to show Russian Federation there are "costs and consequences" for its "unacceptable and dangerous" actions.

Britain shared "unprecedented levels" of intelligence about a spy poisoning it blamed on Moscow, which has led at least 25 countries to expel Russian diplomats, a senior United Kingdom government official said Tuesday.

More than two dozen nations have expelled Russian diplomats in response to the nerve agent attack on Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England.

Iran urges dialogue to settle Yemen conflicts
Khoshrou called on the Muslin world and the worldwide community to pressure Saudi Arabia to stop war in Yemen. Houthis have been controlling much of Yemen's north by force, including the capital Sanaa since 2014.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday accused Washington of applying "colossal pressure" to achieve the massive, coordinated global response to the poisoning.

A police officer left seriously ill after the March 4 attack was released from hospital last week. Numerous countries to follow suit on Monday said they did so out of solidarity with the British government.

President Trump spoke Tuesday with the leaders of France and Germany - which expelled four Russian diplomats each over the Skripal affair.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the RIA Novosti news agency that Moscow was disappointed by the USA announcement that it would expel 60 Russian diplomats and shut down a consulate in Seattle.

British officials say Russian Federation has sought to divert attention by putting out more than a dozen explanations for the attack, the first using a nerve agent in Europe since World War II.
