Tefft: U.S. Did Not Pressure Russian Diplomats


The U.S. ambassador to Russia, John Tefft, has sought to clarify the circumstances surrounding a diplomatic tit-for-tat between Washington and Moscow. Speaking during a joint interview by RFE/RL and VOA in Moscow on September 6, Tefft said that U.S. officials did not "put undue pressure" on anyone and acted in accordance with the law when taking back the Russian diplomatic facilities in San Francisco.
