OPCW: No member states known to possess 'Novichok-class' nerve agents

The UN chemical weapons watchdog said none of its member states have declared possessing 'Novichok-class' nerve agent, which London claims was used in the poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal.

"There is no record of the Novichok group of nerve agents having been declared by a state party to the Chemical Weapons Convention," the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a press release on Friday. Nearly all countries in the UN are members to the OPCW, except for Egypt, Israel, North Korea and South Sudan.

The watchdog said open-source information on the agents in this class is sparse. It added that OPCW experts are searching through scientific and technical sources available to them.

The obscure name surfaced after the UK bluntly accused Russia of using the mystery agent to poison former double agent Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury. Both are said to remain in a critical condition.
