Britain and Bulgaria are jointly investigating the 2015 poisoning of a Bulgarian arms dealer to determine whether it involved novichok, the nerve agent used in the poisoning of Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury last year, the Guardian writes. 

The investigation was announced on Monday, after the British ambassador to Bulgaria met Boyko Borissov, the country’s prime minister, and other senior officials. It came after reports that one of the potential suspects in the Skripal poisoning was also allegedly in Bulgaria at the time of the poisoning of the arms dealer.

“We are working in a joint team and a close partnership, and we are going to find out the facts in this case,” ambassador Emma Hopkins told reporters in Sofia.
