MOSCOW, July 12, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Cuba are adherent to a principle of using outer space for peaceful purposes and preserving it free from any weapons, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday, after Russian and Cuban Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Bruno Rodriguez signed a Joint Statement on Not Being the First to Place Arms in Outer Space. It was signed on Friday, July 11, during Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Cuba.
“The Russian-Cuban statement on Not Being the First to Place Arms in Outer Space once again confirmed the two countries’ adherence to a secure use of outer space for peaceful purposes and to preserving it free from (the deployment of) any weapons there,” the ministry said.
“The Republic of Cuba has accepted political obligations on the agreement, which contribute greatly to the process of globalization of the Russian initiative aimed at averting the arms race in outer space and at strengthening international security and global stability on the whole,” the ministry said.
