MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. Russia and the United States diverged in their approaches to the security of operations in outer space during discussions in the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
"The session revealed the divergence of the Russian and US approaches in the understanding of how the issue of the security of space operations should be settled," she said.
Moscow insists on the serious examination of the issues of security in outer space and does not want to be confined only to the "talks on the need of responsible behavior in outer space," the Russian diplomat said.
The Russian side put forward the relevant initiatives, the spokeswoman said.
"An impression is being created that the United States is staking on speeding up at any cost the adoption of an underdeveloped and half-formulated document [on this issue] in June 2016," Zakharova said.
Russia’s approach in this situation is to "reasonably prolong the negotiating process and complete it with the approval of a document that would define for a long perspective the ways of keeping outer space as a stable and safe and conflict-free operational zone," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman urged to "find a sound compromise on this issue."
