U.S. adoptions of Russian children have been halted, a week after a Russian boy was rejected by his adoptive mother in the American state of Tennessee.

The Russian foreign ministry said the move would apply until a bilateral adoption agreement could be signed.

An international outcry erupted last week when the adoptive mother, a nurse, sent the seven-year-old Russian boy on a one-way flight to Moscow on his own.

She sent a note with him saying the boy had psychological issues.

"To Whom It May Concern," the letter read. "This child is mentally unstable. He is violent and has severe psychopathic issues. I was lied to and misled by the Russian orphanage workers and director regarding his mental stability and other issues."

The U.S. state department is arranging for a high-level delegation to visit Moscow next week to discuss the incident and the possibility of a bilateral adoption agreement.

Russian foreign ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko told a TV briefing: "Russia believes only such an agreement… will ensure that recent tragedies in the United States will not be repeated." Read more about this story.
