The Statement by the Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki

Poland is gravely concerned by information on the use of nerve agent in an attempt to murder Mr. Sergei Skripal and his daughter Ms. Yulia Skripal, which endangered lives of innocent civilians.

We condemn this unprecedented attack on the territory of the United Kingdom. This use of chemicals as weapons is clearly violating the international law and the provisions of the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction (CWC). 

Poland expresses our full solidarity with the British people and the British Government as well as its readiness to support our close ally and European partner in conduct of the investigation.

At the same time we call on Russia to address the UK’s questions and appropriately cooperate with the OPCW in this regard.

Poland expresses its strong conviction that those responsible for the use of chemical weapons must and should be held accountable.
