Alexander Litvinenko

Asked to characterise the discussions between the Russian and UK Governments regarding the Litvinenko case, the PMSO said he did not want to get into the discussions. There was a legal process set in training yesterday by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), and we believe that should be followed through Russia should abide by its international obligations and we believe that by abiding to international obligations people will have the confidence in investing in Russia. The PMOS added that he was sure that Russia was just as aware of this as the UK was.

Asked if the Prime Minister had spoken recently to President Putin, the PMOS said he was not aware of any conversation.

Asked if there were plans for the Prime Minister or Foreign Secretary to meet with their opposite number following on from the position of Russia as stated yesterday, the PMOS said what needed to be first distinguished was the view of an individual and a formal response from Russia, the latter of which we were still waiting for.
