PARIS – The French government wants to see proof that Russia is involved in the zenuwgasaanval in Great Britain. It is yet too early to decide whether action should be taken, made a government spokesman clearly. “If the elements are proven, it breaks down the time to make decisions.”
The spokesman called the attack in Salisbury in former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia “a serious incident” that was directed against a strategic ally. However, he also found that France is waiting for “definitive conclusions” and evidence “that the facts completely right,” before the a position.
Diplomats say that the French president Macron does not believe in isolating Moscow. He would, in spite of the disagreements of interest to find a workable relationship with the Russians, that in international crises often play a major role.
