The United States is about to amend its security policy to include the possible armament of space and therefore it is seemingly prepared to diverge from the principle of the peaceful use of outer space, which it had initially championed, and which became accepted by the international community as the acquis of outer space law.

Therefore, the views later expressed in the literature that the clause has no legal relevance, or that it is too vague with regard to the assessment of the admissibility of military uses, are mistaken. However, from the beginning there was no common interpretation of the notion “peaceful” and the extent of the principle of the peaceful use of outer space.

Point 1 of the draft reads: A ban on the use of cosmic space for military purposes and an undertaking by States to launch rockets into cosmic space only under an agreed international programme. The first proposals by the United States and the Soviet Union on the subject of the use of outer space were directed towards preventing an arms race in outer space and, thus, from the onset of the space age, the international community attempted to enshrine this goal in an international agreement within the framework of the United Nations.
