"France agrees with the United Kingdom that there is no other plausible explanation", President Emmanuel Macron's office said in a statement following a phone call between Macron and May.

"The United States believes that Russian Federation is responsible for the attack on two people in the United Kingdom using a military-grade nerve agent", Haley told the council.

"The leaders called on Russian Federation "to address all questions related to the attack", and provide a complete disclosure of the Novichok (nerve agent) program to the world chemical weapons watchdog." the statement said.

The chemical used in the attack has been identified part of a group of nerve agents developed by Russian Federation known as Novichok, Mrs May said.

"Therefore, we, of course, are concerned by this situation but we will explain our position to the worldwide community patiently and consistently - Russian Federation has nothing to do with the incident which occurred with Skripal in Salisbury", he added.

"We, the leaders of France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom, abhor the attack that took place against Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, UK, on 4 March 2018", the governments said.

The Russian foreign minister this morning said the British response to the Salisbury spy attack was "irresponsible" and "not based on evidence".

Russia, however, has dismissed the accusations as "fairy tales" and denied any involvement in the attack which landed the Skripals, along with a British police officer, in the hospital.

May has directly accused President Vladimir Putin of being behind the attack.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, former commander of the British Army's chemical and biological weapons regiment, called the claim that US or British agents could have developed Novichok "complete hogwash". "All the responsibility for the deterioration of the Russia-U.K. relationship lies with the current political leadership of Britain".

Speaking on Russia-24 television, Zakharova said Britain is taking a tough line against Russia because of frustration at recent advances of Russian-backed Syrian government forces against Western-backed rebels.

The British ambassador to Moscow, Laurie Bristow, was summoned to the Foreign Ministry where he was told of the expulsions.

Johnson further appealed to worldwide partners to "stand with us against Russia" in a Washington Post editorial, saying the poisoning is "part of a pattern of reckless behaviour by" Putin showing "reckless defiance" of global rules.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin expressed its surprise by Britain's behavior towards Russian Federation, the United Kingdom's position in relation to the poisoning of former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal because it contradicts global law and common sense, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg followed that up Friday by saying that the incident reflected a Russian "pattern of reckless behavior" that includes cyberattacks and election meddling.

August 2006: Russian Federation convicts Skripal of treason and sentences him to 13 years in prison for spying. A police officer was also exposed to the nerve agent and was hospitalized.

This is our duty to let it work and the government has been doing everything to ensure that it happens", he said. "This dinner was not hosted for politics , but for amity and friendship".
