Earlier, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has claimed that Moscow was "highly likely" behind the poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal, saying the military-grade nerve agent was originally produced in Russia.

London called for an urgent meeting of the United Nations Security Council to update members on the probe into a nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal, a former officer of Russia's Main Intelligence Directorate, and his daughter, according to the Foreign Office's Twitter account.

Theresa May on Monday said in an address to the parliament it was "highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and [his daughter] Yulia Skripal," and demanded that Moscow unveils the details of its Novichok nerve agents program to the the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). She went on to stress London will consider the poisoning as the use of force on the UK territory, if there's no response.
