“the fact of non-issuance of visas is a gross violation of international law, agreements between the UN and the United States. Because the United States has committed to issue visas not just in their country, and, in fact, in the UN,” said Ordzhonikidze.
According to the diplomat, Washington gets a big gain from disposal of the UN, but not ready to implement existing agreements with the organization.
