The meeting would be to discuss the investigation of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter poisoned in Salisbury, the RIA news agency reported on Saturday.

“We hope for a constructive response from the British side and are counting on such a meeting in the very nearest future,” the agency cited a spokesman for the Russian embassy saying.

The British Foreign Office confirmed it had received the request.

“We will be responding in due course,” a spokeswoman said.
