Russia says UN chief turns blind eye over US visa delaysTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)-Moscow says Washington has deliberately delayed issuing visas to Russian officials travelling to the UN headquarters, a move Russia has said could further damage strained relations.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement that some Defence Ministry officials who were due to travel to the UN secretariat had to wait "months" for visa clearance.

"It is noticeable, that all that is happening with the sheer connivance from the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, who effectively ignores United States' breaches into the UN Charter," she said.

Russia summoned a senior US diplomat in September to protest over what it said was Washington's unacceptable refusal to issue visas to members of a Russian delegation travelling to the UN General Assembly.
