BRATISVLAVA, May 7. /TASS/. Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Monday denied his country had developed and produced the nerve gas Novichok, thus contradicting an earlier statement by President Milos Zeman.

"The Czech Republic has not developed, produced, or kept in store (the nerve agent] Novichok," Babis said.

Babis said he relied on the conclusions made by the chiefs of the Security Service and Military Intelligence.

Interviewed on Prague’s television channel Barrandow earlier, Zeman said that a research center in Brno last November produced and tested an insignificant amount of Novichok. After the tests the substance was promptly eliminated.
