The Soviet Union said it will end its self-imposed moratorium on deployment of anti-satellite weapons if the United States tests a missile against a target in space. According to a schedule of the U.S. anti-satellite research program, the next such test calls for a target to be orbited and then destroyed by a missile launched from an F-15 fighter jet. Although targets have been sent into space, the test has not been completed and no date has been made public. “If the U.S. Administration really valued its dialogue with Moscow . . . it would not have made Soviet moratoriums a target for attacks,” the Novosti news agency said.
