MOSCOW, May 27. /TASS/. The United States is harping on allegations about Russia’s and China’s plans to develop anti-satellite weapons to discredit Russia’s initiatives, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Friday.

"Of special concern is the fact that the United States has been stubbornly denying any agreements on keeping outer space free from weapons," Ryabkov said at a meeting of the international committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house. "First of all, it is the United States’ resistance to the Russia-and China-initiated draft international treaty on prevention of deployment of weapons in outer space or a threat of force in respect of space objects and the initiative on non-deployment of weapons in outer space first."

However Washington, according to the Russian diplomat, is offering no constructive ideas on that matter. "It is only discrediting our initiatives," he said. "In the recent time, the United States has triggered allegations about Moscow’s and Beijing’s development of anti-satellite weapons to attack objects in outer space."
