Example text

To address this problem, we need to revamp the international legal system on outer space; in particular, we need to ensure that a comprehensive regime preventing the weaponization of outer space and an arms race in outer space is developed. A sound intellectual basis on which to build already exists and is reflected by the proposals made by several states to the United Nations and the CD. The CD, in particular, constitutes a competent negotiating body of which states must take full advantage to establish a general agreement on the principles and regulations regarding the peaceful uses of outer space.

Flights by foreign cosmonauts on Russian spacecraft and space stations, the ApolloSoyuz Test Project, international collaboration in operations on the Mir space station and the International Space Station and many other examples clearly demonstrate the Russian Federation’s commitment to effective models of partnership and international cooperation. The development of international cooperation on the basis of equality and mutually beneficial partnership in the field of space activities is one of the Russian Federation’s main priorities.

However, many continued to affirm the central role of the CD and advocate both unilateral declarations and collective diplomatic efforts by all states. When the concept of nuclear deterrence was discussed with reference to its potential applicability to outer space, it was strongly asserted that there are no grounds to make such a comparison. While nuclear deterrence is meant to prevent nuclear attacks between nuclear weapons states, the only country with the capability to implement such an attack in or from outer space would be the United States.
