Mr Varadkar said earlier that a security assessment will be carried out on Russian diplomats based in Ireland."What we will now consider in the coming days is to whether we want to take individual action relating to Russian diplomats in Ireland, bearing in mind that what the UK did was to expel 23 diplomats who they believed, were not actually diplomats, were agents," he said."Other member states are sometimes subject to attack; we saw a terrible attack today in France and last week an attempted assassination using a chemical agent occurred in England.Taoiseach Leo Varadkar arrives for an EU summit at the Europa building in Brussels on Thursday, March 22, 2018."So we would have to do a security assessment just like they did before that, we are not going to randomly expel people who are genuine diplomats. The minister for Foreign Affairs Tanaiste (Simon Coveney) and I already spoke about this, in the coming days so we will make that decision I would say the early part of next week." He said that the assessment will involved the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Department of Justice and the Taoiseach's own department.Mr Varadkar said the UK shared their assessment and primary investigation in to the case “and obviously other countries who have intelligence agencies as well were able to share their assessment as to what happened in Salisbury”.The show of support from the EU, at a time when Britain is grappling with its departure from the bloc, will boost UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who has been asking other nations to match her decision to expel Russians over the attack.
Speaking in Brussels, Mr Varadkar said: "We’re part of a European Union which has 28 member states in it.
The use of chemical weapons in any circumstances is completely unacceptable.
"As the Taoiseach has said this morning we will be considering next week whether it is appropriate for the Government to take additional measures in relation to the Russian Embassy in Dublin, in light of security considerations and in solidarity with the actions taken by the UK.
“The European Union agreed last night and Ireland is part of the European Union – this was on our proposal – we agreed yesterday – as a European Union that we agree with the UK assessment that it’s highly likely that Russian authorities were behind the Salisbury attack”, he said.
Foreign affairs minister Simon Coveney outlined the next steps for the Government.
