Russia and China opposed the deployment of weapons in space
11 June Russia and China presented at the UN Conference on Disarmament in Geneva a draft treaty on the prevention of the placement of weapons in space, the threat and use of force against space objects.
The countries proposed concluding an international treaty in order to prevent an arms race in outer space. The urgency of the issue is associated with the rapid development of space technology in the world and the growing threat to security in space.
Russia and China came up with a similar initiative, since the current legislation in the field of outer space does not regulate this issue, reports Xinhua news agency.
The first version of the draft Treaty Russia and China jointly presented at the UN Conference on Disarmament in 2008. New project updated and improved.
