Russia will present during the current session of the UN General Assembly a new draft resolution “on no first deployment of weapons in outer space,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday as the Assembly’s First Committee started its work in New York at the UNGA 69th session.
“The forum will consider important weapons control issues, matters of disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as ways of improving efficiency of the UN multilateral disarmament mechanism,” the ministry said. “The delegations are expected to submit for approval of the UN member states more than 60 draft resolutions and decisions.”
