Ahead of his visit to Russia, the UN Secretary General refrained from disclosing details of his would-be agenda in Moscow but said he was using an opportunity to visit Russia for discussions with the Russian leadership of the issues related to various spheres of UN operations. He especially singled out Russia’s role in the UN efforts, since this country is one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council.
