Russia has declared four British diplomats persona non grata
Russia has declared four British diplomats persona non grata in response to London’s actions and demanded they leave the country within 10 days. British Ambassador in Moscow Anthony Brenton has been summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry. The ambassador has been handed a note “in connection with the unfriendly actions of Britain towards Russia and the Litvinenko case”, Kamynin said on Thursday. “The British diplomat has been informed on other return steps towards provocative and unfriendly actions of London in light of the Litvinenko case. In particular, Russia said we would act ‘mirror-like’ on all visa issues. The ambassador has been demanded to give explanations over London’ s tough requirements on the issuance of visas to Russian officials,” the Russian spokesman said. “Russian officials will not apply for British visas and visas will not be issued for British officials until explanations are given,” Kamynin stressed. “Unfortunately, such steps make cooperation with London in the war against terrorism impossible,” he added. The spokesman said Moscow took into account the interests of ordinary citizens – tourists, participants in cultural and scientific exchanges, journalists and businessmen. “In any case Moscow did not seek a quarrel with London,” he added. “The Labour government is guided by anything but not by common sense. I’m convinced that common sense will prevail,” the diplomat pointed out.
