Moscow to view UN events hosted by U.S. as risky - deputy envoy

NEW YORK CITY (UN). Oct 16 (Interfax) - Moscow will keep in mind the risk of visa non-issuance in case of UN events hosted by the United States, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Gennady Kuzmin told Russian journalists.

"We will assume that the convocation of any UN meetings and events in the United States is fraught with the risk of visa non-issuance, which may prevent delegations from attending," Kuzmin said after a meeting of the Committee on Relations with the Host Country.

"We will keep this reality in mind," he said.
