Krem­lin raps US for not is­su­ing visas to Un-bound of­fi­cials

Iran Daily - - International -

The Krem­lin on Fri­day ac­cused the US au­thor­i­ties of act­ing in an un­ac­cept­able way by not is­su­ing en­try visas to a Rus­sian mil­i­tary del­e­ga­tion which had been due to at­tend a brief­ing at the United Na­tions head­quar­ters in New York.

A group of se­nior of­fi­cers from the gen­eral staff of the Rus­sian armed forces could not at­tend the joint brief­ing on Thurs­day with the Chi­nese mil­i­tary at the UN be­cause they had no US visas, said Alexan­der Emelianov, from the Rus­sian De­fense Min­istry in­ter­na­tional co­op­er­a­tion com­mit­tee, Reuters re­ported.

“As a coun­try host­ing the United Na­tions head­quar­ters and its struc­tures, the US au­thor­i­ties bear cer­tain obli­ga­tions. Cer­tainly, in this case we are very wor­ried by such a sit­u­a­tion and con­sider it un­ac­cept­able,” Krem­lin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a reg­u­lar con­fer­ence call with re­porters.
