    MOSCOW, July 31 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's foreign ministry does not intend to revoke ABC accreditation for airing an interview with Chechen terrorist leader Shamil Basayev, the ministry officials said commenting on a statement made earlier by Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov that his ministry breaks up all contacts with the ABC TV network.

    "It [the ABC] is a persona non grata, it is a rogue TV station as far as the defense ministry is concerned," Ivanov told a news conference in Vladivostok Sunday.

    "The statement made by the defense minister does not mean that the foreign ministry will also revoke ABC's accreditation," foreign ministry officials said.
