Last week Washington decided to create a “coalition” of countries interested in exploiting the resources of space. In this list there was no Russia, that the Russian foreign Ministry. And today, may 11, it became known that Moscow is ready for dialogue with Washington regarding its participation in the new project.
Today, may 11, the journalists of RIA “news” referring to its sources in the Russian foreign Ministry has published an article saying that Moscow is ready for dialogue with Washington on joint development of resources of space, informs LigaNews.
At the end of last week Sergey Ryabkov, Deputy foreign Minister of Russia stated that US plans for the development of the resources of space in the format of “the coalition of the concerned” are nothing other than the principle of “whoever is not with us is against us”.
Ryabkov said, as of late, Washington all offers are reduced to the format of the “coalition of stakeholders” that can alarm Moscow.
To date, the U.S. has only one principle, “whoever is not with us is against us”. And it works both on land and sea and in space. “We repeatedly said that there is an alternative is the development of collective agreements,” Ryabkov said.
