Russia calls on US to reject plans of deploying missile defense facilities in space

MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. Moscow calls on Washington no to deploy missile defense facilities in space, as stipulated in the new US missile defense conception, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Friday.

"We call on Washington to display reasonableness and reject such irresponsible ventures which could entail extremely negative consequences both for the whole international community and the US itself. It is obvious that the appearance of weapons in space would run counter to the established practice of international cooperation in the research and use of space for peaceful purposes," the ministry said in a statement.
