LONDON: Britain's National Security Council will meet on Wednesday to evaluate Russia's response to an ultimatum for disclosing any information it has about a nerve agent attack against a former spy, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said.

"There will be a meeting of the NSC tomorrow morning to discuss the next steps... to discuss the response from Russia, whatever that may be," the spokesman told reporters on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Britain will consider its response against Russia on Wednesday after demanding President Vladimir Putin explain how a nerve agent developed in the days of the Soviet Union was used against a former Russian spy, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said.

"There will be a meeting of the National Security Council to discuss the next steps," her spokesman told reporters. He said he was not expecting to comment on the Russian response ahead of that meeting.

He added that May had told her cabinet team of top ministers that the incident in the English city of Salisbury, where Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, remain unconscious, was "reckless and indiscriminate".
