Merkel says EU united on Russia, but must keep talking to Moscow
Berlin: German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union would present a common stance over a nerve agent attack on an ex-Russian spy in England for which British Prime Minister Theresa May holds Moscow responsible.
“We take the findings of the British government very seriously ... We will present a common European view here,” Merkel told German broadcaster ARD, noting that European leaders would meet next week.
“Nonetheless, I say we can’t break off all contacts now. We must still talk with the Russians despite all differences of opinion,” she added.
