LONDON Oct 17 A decision by NatWest to withdraw
banking services in Britain from state-funded Russian
broadcaster RT is a matter for the bank, British Prime Minister
Theresa May's spokeswoman said on Monday.
RT published a letter from NatWest on its website saying
that the bank, which is part of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group
, had reached the decision after "careful consideration"
and that the determination was final.
"It's a matter for the bank and it's for them to decide who
they offer services to based on their own risk appetite," May's
spokeswoman told reporters.
