Russian Foreign Ministry grills US Ambassador in Moscow
MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Ministry grills US Ambassador in Moscow over the Visa row for the Russia's UN delegations.
Russian Foreign Ministry slammed Washington for visa denial to members of the Russian delegation, who were to attend the United Nations General Assembly.
The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned on Tuesday the US envoy to Moscow after it turned out that the US had failed to provide several members of the Russian delegation to the United Nations General Assembly with visas timely.
Commenting on the visa denial, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the situation was alarming and unacceptable, adding that Washinton's move violates international obligations.
Earlier in the day, Konstantin Kosachev, the chairman of the Russian upper house's foreign affairs committee, said he had failed to receive a US visa in due time and would, therefore, miss the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York.
