About three million people followed Lavrov’s flight from Moscow to New York on the Flightradar tracking website, which is a new "record."
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will hold a meeting with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York and chair a high-level open debate at the UN Security Council (UNSC) on effective multilateralism through the defense of the UN Charter's principles on Monday.
The top Russian diplomat is expected to discuss with Guterres a series of issues relating to Russia-UN relations and a number of joint efforts, including the Black Sea grain initiative.
Speaking at the UNSC, Lavrov will hold a comprehensive, a forward-looking strategic debate on the makings of international peace and security. A special place in the discussion will be devoted to the protection of the democratic principles of the UN Charter, based on the sovereign equality of states.
Meanwhile, Deputy spokesman for the UN Secretary General Farhan Haq refrained on Sunday from commenting on the US refusal to issue visas to Russian journalists who were supposed to accompany Foreign Minister Lavrov to the UN Security Council.
Moscow slammed Washington's decision not to issue visas to the reporters, adding that the United States breached its pledges to protect freedom of speech.
