G7 Foreign Minister ‘condemns in strongest words’ Russia allegations of attempted poisoning September 9 at 8:22 a.m.
In response to the alleged attempted poisoning of Mr Nawarinui, the leader of Russia’s opposition forces, the foreign ministers of the G7 and the seven major countries issued a joint statement “condemning in the strongest words” and ousted Moscow to find out the truth.
In August, Nawarinui, the leader of an opposition group that has criticized Putin’s regime in Russia, was taken to a German hospital complaining of a physical accident while traveling in Russia, and German Chancellor Merkel released a study on September 2 that said the same type of substance as Novichok, a nerve agent developed in the former Soviet Union, was used.
In response, the foreign ministers of the G7 countries and senior representatives of the EU-European Union issued a joint statement today.
“We condemn in the strongest terms,” the statement said, noting that the attack was a significant blow to Russia’s democracy and political diversity.
He stressed that “the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable under any circumstances and contrary to international norms”, and ousced the Russian government to investigate the truth and pursue responsibility, as “we call on Russia to fully clarify and judge the person responsible for this abominable poison attack as soon as possible.”
On the other hand, the Russian government has repulsed that no nerve agents were detected in the examination of Russian hospitals, and the conflict between Europe and the United States and Russia is being increasingly intense.
