Andrey Klimov, deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, believes that the US authorities are violating the conditions for the location of the UN headquarters in New York. One of the duties of the American authorities is to ensure unhindered access for official delegations of UN members to New York, he wrote on his Telegram channel.
Earlier, the Russian Embassy in the United States applied to the White House and the State Department with a demand to immediately issue visas to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and all members of the Russian delegation to participate in the September UN General Assembly in New York, which will be held from September 20 to 26. This year, for the first time in three years, it will be held in person.
“Washington does not respect and does not comply with the UN Charter, puts its whims above international law and the rights of 192 states. The American authorities are afraid that under Lavrov, their diplomats will look miserable on the site of the General Assembly, ”the senator wrote. He called the behavior of the US authorities towards Russian diplomats “boorish”.
