THERESA May has warned Russia the international community will take tough action against Vladimir Putin’s regime and its allies if they continue to use weapons of mass destruction. In a uncompromising speech to the UN Security Council chaired by US President Donald Trump, Mrs May attacked Russia’s use of a nerve agent in Salisbury against former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

She warned that if democracies fail to take action they leave the space open to extremists such as Islamic State also known as Daesh, Communism and Fascism.

In a stark warning to the Assembly, she said: “The Cold War did not – as many once believed – lead to the inevitable supremacy of open economies and liberal democracies co-operating on the global stage for the common good.
