The US authorities are already making steps towards deploying weapons in outer space, rejecting any proposals to sign a moratorium, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov wrote in his article published at the Ministry’s website on September 20.
In his article “World at a Crossroads and a System of International Relations for the Future” the diplomat stressed that the USA rejects any proposals to agree on a universal moratorium on deploying weapons in outer space.
Washington’s actions fly in the face of all efforts to maintain control over nuclear and missile weapons. First, Washington torpedoed the ABM Treaty, and now the INF Treaty, the minister noted. Lavrov called the US policy in this field revisionist.
Previously, the Russian Foreign Minister upon called the USA to refrain from the “space” arms race. The diplomat stressed that Russia is concerned with the US plans to deploy weapons in outer space.
