The deployment of weapons to outer space must be prohibited, as an attack from Earth's orbit could potentially target any country in the world at any time and ruin global stability, a Russian delegation said at the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, reports GHN based on RT.
The risks of this becoming a reality are now more "likely in light of scientific and technological developments," the Russian representatives said, as quoted by TASS.
Speaking at the plenary session on the prevention of an arms race in space, they drew attention to the draft treaty introduced by Russia and China last year.
The Russian delegation noted "it is not a complete recipe, but rather an invitation to work together on its future development."
The address stated that it is important to use the time when there are no weapons in space "to start substantive work on the text."
At the same time, it has been a priority to pursue global policy initiatives to encourage countries not to become the first to place weapons in space, the delegation said, referring to "voluntary political commitments that would confirm peaceful nature of [nations'] space activities."

The prevention of the placement of weapons in orbit has been an important goal of Russia's foreign policy.
Russia has been promoting various initiatives that would prohibit the weaponization of space. One such project includes the draft resolution 'No First Placement of Arms in Outer Space,' presented at the UN General Assembly.
