“Maybe education is not enough” — said the head of Department.
The statement of British policy also reacted to the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. “What else can be said by the Minister of defence of the country, which hides the circumstances of the use on its territory of chemical weapons and does not want to convey the information, as required by the Convention for the prohibition of chemical weapons,” — she wrote on his page in Facebook.
March 15 Williamson during a press conference said that “Russia should leave and shut up”. So he reacted to the plans of the Russian government to take action in response to the expulsion of Russian diplomats.
