31 Mar 2018, by British Arab Network in In the Media

 

The United States and its European allies are expelling dozens of Russian diplomats in a co-ordinated response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK.

In an interview with France 24 Arabic TV, Dr. Wafik Moustafa, Chairman of the British Arab Network, welcomed the move.

Dr. Moustafa said:

“I welcome the tremendous international response to Russia’s actions. It is absolutely great that our allies are standing shoulder to shoulder with the United Kingdom against Russia’s aggression. It will send a clear message that we will not tolerate it and we will stand up for our values and sovereignty”.

 

Spy poisoning: Russian diplomats expelled across US and Europe

The United States and its European allies are expelling dozens of Russian diplomats in a co-ordinated response to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in the UK.

It is said to be the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers in history.

More than 20 countries have aligned with the UK, expelling more than 100 diplomats.

Russia vowed to retaliate to the “provocative gesture”.

Russia denies any role in the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury, southern England. The pair remain in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

EU leaders agreed last week it was highly likely Russia was behind the nerve-agent poisoning.

Mrs May said: “President Putin’s regime is carrying out acts of aggression against our shared values and interests within our continent and beyond.

“And as a sovereign European democracy, the United Kingdom will stand shoulder to shoulder with the EU and with Nato to face down these threats together.”

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson also praised the “extraordinary international response” by the UK’s allies.
