Selin ATAY-TDO- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, the United States to participate in the Conference on the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to the Russian delegation to participate in the visa is an ugly event, he said.
Failure to issue visas to some members of the Russian delegation from the United States, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged to think about moving international events from New York to more stable venues with a responsible host.
“Apparently, the time is coming to transfer such events from New York to more sustainable sites where the host party is responsible for its responsibilities,” he said at the 11th Conference on Facilitating the Entry into Force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
As noted in the Federation Council, the actions of the American side are "twisting the arms."
On the one hand, Lavrov said that Russia has applied all the procedures required to obtain a visa, but the visa request of 10 members of the delegation has been rejected by US. On the other hand, The United States explained the lack of visas was due to technical problems.
