Vladimir Putin suggests international agreement to ban placement of space weapons

Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed an international agreement to ban placement of space weapons.

“Russia is promoting an initiative to sign a binding agreement between all the leading space powers that would provide for the prohibition of the placement of weapons in outer space, or the threat or use of force,” Putin said during his speech at the UN General Assembly.

He further dismissed US and British accusations that Russia has been testing weapons in space.

Putin told the UN that Russia and the US should enter talks to extend the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, which will expire in February next year.
