After India’s successful launch of an anti-satellite missile test that put the country in a league of global “space powers” Russia has asked New Delhi to join international efforts to ensure that outer space is not weaponised.
“Russia intends to continue to make necessary effort to prevent an arms race in outer space,” Indian news agency said in a statement.
“The idea of developing a multilateral legally binding instrument for keeping outer space peaceful based on the Russian-Chinese draft treaty with support of a group of like-minded nations to prevent weaponization of outer space, the use or threat of force against space objects as well as multilateral initiative – political obligations not to be first to place weapons in space are becoming particularly important. We offer our Indian partners to actively join these joint efforts of the international community,” Russia said in the statement, according to ANI.
