Russia says regrets EU comments on UK spy attack

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday it regretted comments made at a meeting of European Union foreign ministers on Monday about the poisoning of a former Russian double agent in Britain.

European Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels called on Russia to answer questions on the use of a toxin against one of its former spies in Britain and offered London “unqualified solidarity”.

“We regret that the European Union ... once again obeyed the misconstrued considerations of ‘eurosolidarity’ and accumulated anti-Russian reflexes,” the ministry said in a statement.

“This state of affairs, of course, does not honor the common foreign policy of the EU.”
