Russia summons senior U.S. diplomat over U.N. visa problems - news agencies

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia on Tuesday summoned a U.S. diplomat in Moscow to protest over what it said was Washington’s unacceptable refusal to issue visas to members of a Russian delegation travelling to the United Nations General Assembly, Russian news agencies reported.

Russia earlier on Tuesday called the visa problems a violation of Washington’s international commitments and said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov planned to raise the issue with his U.S. counterpart in New York.
