Russia needs to change behavior to restore diplomatic ties – Britain

LONDON, Britain said Thursday restoration of diplomatic relations with Russia was subjected to Moscow’s change of its behavior.

“You can’t work on building good relations with a hostile Russian behavior which undermines stability,” Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesperson said in a statement in reaction to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s call for resolution of conflict with London.

The spokesperson however said that did not mean Britain was not cooperating with Russia over issues related to international security which were in interest to London.

The assassination of a double Russian agent in Britain in March 2018 caused an international diplomatic crisis. London, European and Western capitals expelled tens of Russian diplomats because they accused Moscow of being behind the murder.
