The leaders of the United States, France and Germany joined Britain Thursday in blaming Russia for poisoning a former spy with a powerful nerve agent, condemning what they called the first attack with a nerve agent in Europe since World War II.The statement is the fruit of British efforts to enlist international support as it tries to hold Russia accountable for the March 4 attack that left former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in critical condition and a British police officer seriously ill.Britain is trying to build a unified Western response, saying the attack in Salisbury is just the latest example of Russia's disregard for international norms on the rule of law.In their joint statement, Trump, Macron, Merkel and May cited "a pattern of earlier irresponsible Russian behavior" and called on Russia to disclose details of its Novichok program to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons."We call on Russia to live up to its responsibilities as a member of the U.N. Security Council to uphold international peace and security," they said.The leaders did not say what, if any, actions they would take if Russia does not comply.
