Belgium underlines solidarity with UK over Salisbury case

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel reaffirmed Thursday his country’s solidarity with the United Kingdom in the Salisbury case.

“I strongly condemn this attack. This is not just an assassination attempt, but a serious attack on the security of the population. This is unacceptable,” he said in a statement.

Michel called on Russia to collaborate in order to shed light on this case and noted “it is fundamental that the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and international commitments are fully respected.” Moreover, he called on the President of the European Council Donald Tusk to coordinate a response from the 28 Member States of the European Union.
