US bars Russian General Staff delegation from taking part in UN event

On Thursday evening, Russian Federation and China held a joint briefing on problems posed by the U.S. missile shield on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

Members of a delegation from the Russian Defense Ministry were not issued visas to enter the USA to take part in a joint Russian-Chinese military conference at United Nations headquarters in New York, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Alexander Yemelyanov says.

The US Department of State has declined to comment on its denial of visas for Russian General Staff officials, a department spokesperson told Sputnik later on Thursday.

Russia's defense ministry says the constant increase in US Missile defense systems threatens the country's deterrence capabilities as the number of warheads being deployed by the US will surpass the number which Moscow is capable of containing.

"The Russian Federation is confident that the unlimited deployment of the USA anti-missile defense is a serious threat to the global security and can further unleash the arms race and threaten the entire humanity", Emelianov told the briefing.

Major General Zhou Shangping, deputy director-general of the Operations Bureau, the Joint Staff Department of the Central Military Commission, also briefed.
