Moscow will accept results of nerve agent tests-Russia's UK envoy

LONDON, April 5 (Reuters) - Russia’s ambassador to Britain said Moscow would accept the results of tests by international chemical weapons inspectors on a suspected nerve agent used to poison a former Russian spy in England but only if the process was transparent.

Alexander Yakovenko told reporters at a news conference on Thursday that Russia wanted to know which experts were involved in the tests on the toxin used in March 4 attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city of Salisbury.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a global chemical weapons watchdog, is investigating the case. (Reporting by Estelle Shirbon and Michael Holden Writing by William Schomberg)
