The Russian Deputy Representative to the UN, Dmitry Polyansky, proposed to relocate the next session of the First Committee of the General Assembly in 2020 to the outside of the USA — to Vienna or Geneva — Interfax reports. He underlined that the reason for such suggestion is the systematic violation of the USA of their own obligations, as the host, via the non-issuance of visas for a part of the Russian delegation, needed to participate in the UN General Assembly. According to him, this makes it impossible to conduct a dialogue on the most important issues of the disarmament and security. Earlier, Polyansky announced the Russian proposal to take a procedural pause in the work of the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, and switch to informal consultations until the USA issue the visas to the entire Russian delegation. The First Committee of the UN General Assembly deals with the disarmament issues and other related international security matters that affect the international community. The Committee is looking for solutions to the global problems in the context of the international security.
