Armin Laschet, The deputy chair of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Minister President of the most populated state of Germany, North Rhine-Westphalia, has slammed the United Kingdom and its supporters for actions over the so-called Skripal case.
Particularly, the official has criticized the expulsion of Russian diplomats without providing any evidence confirming the Russian involvement into the poisoning.
“If you force almost all NATO-countries to demonstrate solidarity, shouldn’t you have sound evidence? You can treat Russia as you like, but I have learned a different way of dealing with states, studying international law,” he twitted.
Wenn man fast alle NATO-Staaten zur Solidarität zwingt, sollte man dann nicht sichere Belege haben? Man kann zu Russland stehen wie man will, aber ich habe im Studium des Völkerrechts einen anderen Umgang der Staaten gelernt. https://t.co/kqMSS2qkhi
