Russia have ruled out supporting any agreements made at the first Humanitarian Summit, to be held in Istanbul on May 23rd and 24th, because the United Nations Secretariat has ignored its views during the preparations, foreign media reports.

Moscow has confirmed their position in an official letter sent to the international body on Friday.

In the letter Russia has expressed strong dissatisfaction with the actions of the Secretariat, which did not organize an inclusive preparatory process for the Summit, and left member countries by the roadside to Istanbul.

The Russians state that since the announcement of the Summit in 2014, it has had no real opportunity to confirm that its position is being taken into account 'within the set of key agreements', which now represent the main outcome of the meeting.
