Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Where’s the ‘Russia room’? Moscow’s UN envoy jokes with Trump during White House visit”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Vasily Nebenzya was given a tour of the White House on Thursday as part of a reception hosted by the president to mark the start of the US’ rotating tenure as chair of the UN Security Council. The Russian diplomat thanked Trump for his hospitality, but had one cheeky criticism of the White House.

The friendly banter was followed by more serious business, however. Nebenzya also pressed Trump about Russian delegates to the UN General Assembly not being issued visas to carry out their duties in the United States. Moscow has accused Washington of deliberately stalling their visa applications.
