Chemical arms watchdog confirms United Kingdom findings on Russian-made nerve agent

The letter also claims to know that Russian agents tested the effectiveness of nerve agents by smearing them on door handles as part of Foliant, an alleged secret chemical weapons program.

Yulia Skripal said Wednesday that she was discharged from the hospital this week after treatment for the poisoning, according to her statement issued by the Metropolitan Police in London.

The Skripals were found slumped on a bench in the English city of Salisbury on March 4. The attack shredded ties between Russian Federation and Britain and led to a crisis in relations between Moscow and the west including a huge wave of tit-for-tat diplomatic expulsions.

The global chemical weapons watchdog has said an analysis of samples gathered from Sergei Skripal, Yulia Skripal and detective sergeant Nick Bailey - the officer affected during the emergency response - confirmed the U.K.'s assessment of the incident.

Poisoned: Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia Skripal, 33.

Separately on Friday, Russia's ambassador to Britain said he was concerned the British government was trying to get rid of evidence related to the case. "We can not be sure that Yulia's refusal to see us is genuine".

He also said Russian intelligence cyber specialists had targeted Skripal's daughter Yulia's email accounts in 2013.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation confirmed it had received the letter, with a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation official saying that the allies were "united in condemning the use of a nerve agent in Salisbury and we stand in solidarity with the United Kingdom".

Britain named it as Novichok, a group of powerful and deadly chemical compounds reportedly developed by the Soviet government in the 1970s and 1980s. "It is highly likely that Novichoks were developed to prevent detection by the West and to circumvent worldwide chemical weapons controls", he said.

"We will now work closely with our partners to clarify grotesque use of this weapon and convene OPCW council to discuss next steps", Johnson said Thursday through a statement collected by Reuters.

Britain believes it is "likely" that when Russian Federation signed the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) in 1993, some Novichoks had passed acceptance testing. "Only Russia has the means, motive and record", he said.

He repeated previous statements that the Russian state has previously produced Novichoks and would still be capable of doing so.

The UK continues to deny Russian Federation information about the whereabouts of Sergey Skripal's daughter and her state of health.

He said: "We want to meet Yulia and we want proof that she is alright and is in good condition".

He went on: "We didn't produce and store Novichok, so this is the fact of life and all these allegations that we produce something have nothing to do with the reality".
