US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley is engaging in “fake diplomacy”, when speaking about the impossibility of contacting her Russian counterpart, Vasily Nebenzya (current permanent representative to the UN). This statement was made by Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov.

“The fact that Ms. Haley, the Permanent Representative of the United States to the Security Council, stated that all her attempts failed to get through to our representative in recent days , in order to agree on some common collective text of the resolution for Syria – this is a blatant lie, “the Foreign Minister said.

Haley’s behavior demonstrates “a new phenomenon in international relations, when there is not only fake news, but also fake diplomacy.”

Russia has vetoed the draft US resolution on Syria. As Nebenzya explained, the document was called into question Russia’s role in the settlement of the Syrian crisis.

Haley said she tried to get through to Nebenzya to agree on the collective text of the resolution but could not be reached. 

What? It is probably 90% of the Representative’s job to be reached by other high level stakeholders.
