Neither the investigations of the OPCW or laboratory research conducted by the British military lab at Porton Down has not established country of origin of the poison used in Salisbury and also a laboratory that could produce, said the representative of the United Kingdom to the OPCW Peter Wilson.

Two commissioners of the OPCW laboratory took samples from the environment in Salisbury, two labs took biomedical samples, all four samples showed the presence of toxic chemicals like “Beginner”.

“Of course, while the identification used nerve agents is an integral part of the technical evidence in our investigation, no DSTL (Research laboratory of defence technology and British government’s Porton Down — ed.) nor the OPCW report does not specify the country or laboratory of origin of the substances used in this attack,” said Wilson on Wednesday, speaking at the headquarters of the organization in the Hague, the text of his speech was available to RIA Novosti.
