"Roscosmos" made for the resolution against arms race in space

"Roscosmos" in favor of the adoption of the resolution on preventing an arms race in space, said the Deputy General Director of state Corporation Sergey Saveliev, commenting on the US plans for the militarization of space.

Previously, the Pentagon has completed the development of the "strategy of defense in space", which was prepared in response to the "significant threat" from Russia and China.

"We have consistently called on all possible and available meeting place... to adopt a resolution on preventing an arms race in outer space" - quoted Savelyev in a statement on the website of the Corporation.

"With extreme wariness of the perceived statement that Russia plans to place weapons in space aimed against U.S.," he added.

Earlier Russia's Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov said that the United States purposefully with the support of allies, NATO is trying to make the cosmos a sphere of hostilities and possible clashes between the two countries. The diplomat noted that Russia is doing everything possible to prevent it. According to him, Moscow is seriously concerned about the American plans and regularly performs at various venues, including the conference on disarmament at the UN General Assembly, the resolution on prevention of an arms race in outer space.
