MOSCOW (UrduPoint News/Sputnik – August 17, 2022) The Russian Embassy in the United States has urged the White House and State Department to immediately issue visas to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and all members of Russian delegation for a visit to the United Nations General Assembly in September, said Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov.

“The Embassy has already asked the White House, the State Department, to fulfill the obligations of the host country in whose territory the UN headquarters is located and to immediately issue a visa to the Minister and all members of the Russian delegation,” Antonov told broadcaster Rossiya 24.

“We will continue to insist on ensuring the unimpeded entry of all Russian representatives attending the 77th session of the UN General Assembly,” he said.

“Tomorrow I will have another visit to the Department of State, where one of the central issues that I intend to raise is this problem, the problem of the large-scale and full participation of our minister and our delegation to the upcoming September events in New York,” the Ambassador added.
